Percy Crees The other comparison please.
« on: Saturday 06 February 21 08:08 GMT (UK) »
 I am very very suspicious about these being of the same person.  But your opinions please.

 The other thread I just posted   
The dark photo of the older man is 'suss' I think. 
Percy Crees died in 1905 aged 53.  I think this older man is older than that - and why send someone a photo 7 years after his death??   Seems to have been taken in Bournemouth.  Percy lived in Australia and died in Victoria.

On the back of the photo    With best Xmas
                                      & New Year wishes
                                             1911

Hi Wiggy....I don't think they are the same person, the ears are different and so is the shape of the eyebrows, the nose also is a different shape.

Thanks folks - I don't think so either - the photo was given to me with a query.

Some years ago when the restores were done for this bloke, Gadget thought he had 'mad looking eyes'! 

I didn't know him (surprisingly as he died in 1905  ;))  but I don't think the new photo has 'mad eyes'!   ;D ;D
