Since a lot of family photos have been recently discovered, it is amazing the likenes carried through the generations.
I look a lot like my grandfather (William Webb).  I'm not putting my ugly mug on the internet, but here is a link to my grandfathers photo http://webb-erickson.rootschat.net/photographs.htm
I have a sister who is the double of our gg grandmother and another sister who is the double of my grandfather's sister.

It was quite moving to see the likenesses and also a little eerie.

Not only was I the spitting image of my grandfather (mum's side) up until my late twenties, before I put on weight, but apparently I have some of the exact mannerisms, the way I move my head and hands....
The really odd thing is that my grandad died some twenty-five years before I was born!!!  :o  :o

My great-uncle commented on it at one Christmas/New Years family party. Shame he is not alive today to repeat it!  :'(

I also happen to share the same sporting interests as my grandfathers (cricket and cycling). My grandad used to hold the 24hr world distance record in the 1920s. I have some photos from the 20s and 30s of him racing various bikes, including a penny-farthing, at the original Herne Hill track in London. I'll try and dig these out! I spent ten years living in France and Belgium racing bikes in amateur competitions, but had to give up due to injury.

Geoff.

Geoff, I also have some mannerisms of my grandfather.  It is weird though since I only saw him two or three times when I was much younger.
Also, I don't look like much like either of my parents as the likeness seems to have 'jumped' a generation or more in my family.

Ok ok ok Graceland.  But I warn you it's the only photo I have and the likeness is not obvious, though everyone says we look alike.

Warning, this photo will self-destruct after 10 minutes .....
