    1. Hi Mildred, Not too many but there are a few people who like their profiles, and some photographers liked them too. I always wondered why, did they have a defect of some sort. This guy looks fine in the photo in the reference from Iggy. :)

  3. Well! A Man of the Century! Impressive.

    Actually, it's impressive how Iggy finds all this stuff. I thought this one would never be identified, given not only the initials but the unclear surname.
