Hi Jen!  Do you have any opinion on the two photos that started this whole discussion?  I would be interested to know!

Hello Sue,  I am not an expert but can certainly see similarities between the mature Henry and
the sketch e.g. the hooded eyelids.  Perhaps the ear lobes in the sketch are more rounded but
wouldn't discount a relationship between the two on those grounds.  The cleft chin is a dominant
feature but the facial hair on the mature Henry could be hiding that! :D   I would hold onto the idea
of a possible connection until proven otherwise.

Regards,
Jen.

Thanks Jen, very interesting observations.  Yes it's a pity about the facial hair, I wish we had a photo without it but we don't.  For me it's the eyes and particularly the nose.
