Could These Be Pics Of The Same Man?

I found the above strip of photos at Brixton Tube, London in 1992. I could see why it was thrown away and my heart broke for the poor, seemingly cross-eyed, bugger.

Being totally obsessed with all things photobooth, I often trawl through images that other people have posted online. Tumblr is a great place for a bit of a browse.  Looking at Is this you? a brilliant page on that site, I found the photos, below. I’d swear it was the same guy. Sure he is older, balder, and his eyes haven’t crossed. I think most of the rest of him matches. Anyone else see a resemblance?

Is this you? often asks that very question of the viewer but there is no way to contact the publisher to ask him where he found his pics. If any of them were me, how could I let him know?! He seems to be based in the UK, which is a good start, but that is all I can discover.

    Yes, it looks to be the same guy ok. Don’t you think his affect is really weird? Lobotomy?

  2. Is this you? Nope but the people in the two sets of pictures look very similar……sorry could not help myself. I continue to love your blog more on every visit. I had hoped to finally work through the back catalog over the holidays but sadly life got in the way!

    That is absolutely the same gentleman! No doubt in my mind. It’s his distinctive nose gives him away. Brilliant find!

    Pretty sure this is the same guy… what are the odds there could be two that look this identical…. unless of course…. he had a twin and they were separated at birth?… nah…. lets go with its the same guy! 🙂

    • It was so thrilling to see him again. I am always on the lookout for familiar faces from the found photos I have from Melbourne but never expected to see him again.
