Tom, as one who is looking in that mirror, I thoroughly enjoyed these photos so thank you for sharing. In a way, this ties in with Sam's post about still being upset about harming a bird in his youth because our faces ultimately do show our lives lived.

I have a photo "snapped" in a dance hall of my Father when he was a young man (23) he was the "spitting image" of Clark Gable,so much so that his "nickname" on the docks where he worked was "The Hollywood Docker".
What a fantastic looking young man he was.
Sam.

Freddy and Sam, I'm glad you both enjoyed the link. A gallery that grabs and holds one's attention. What stories a face tells.

It's not that I'm old yet... but looking through those made me stop and think of the way I've come the last twenty or so years. Thank you Tom.

In youth, the days are short and the years are long,in old age, the days are long and the years are short.

Sam.

Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to too many.

Thank you, gentlemen, for your comments. I am glad you also found this engaging.

I don't post things like this, but the picture of the gentleman at his bathroom sink with his shaving kit out made me think of the forum. I'm half-surprised no one tried to identify the brush Wink
