Same man?
« on: Tuesday 15 January 19 06:45 GMT (UK) »
Could these two photos be the same man about ten years apart?

Hi mum mum,
Hard to tell as first photo not really sharp but from my quick observation I would say no!  Hairline, nose, ears and mouth all look different to me.   Do you have any other information for comparison?
Regards,

Now that I look at them like this I think the ears are very different too, I thought the eyes were the same.
I have a cricket premiership photo with only some names, I got the team names from the newspaper report of the match, this is Frederick Scammel, the older photo.
I managed to identify one other from his wedding photo, but the article only gives surnames unfortunately.

I think they are different photos as well. My reasoning is that the hair is parted on different sides. Back in that era a man usually didn't change the side that his hair is parted on.

I don't think they are the same. Also, the bottom one looks more than 10 years older than the first one.

Certainly not the same man. There are no identical features to me.

Thanks everyone, I'll rule him out then.
