Person-of-Mystery

Mystery Theme for Today:  Cloak and Dagger


I figured I'd change things up a little today.  There is a famous person in this lineup.  But who is it?  You need not name them all to win.  Only the famous one.




Who could I be?  That's the mystery!  Go ahead and take a guess and then go enjoy your day.  Check back tomorrow and I'll reveal the answer.  The first correct post will be declared the winner.

I think the 'famous' person is the man in the bow tie, coat & derby. Or perhaps the striking woman on the left. Then again, the shortish man with the reflective glasses hiding his eyes is interesting......
That's all the help I can give you, Roger.

DAG said...

Taking a wild guess here. Could it be a young Theodore Roosevelt.

Nate Maas said...

Good guess DAG, but TR is not in this photo.

DAG said...

OK Nate, it was wild guess.

I do have a back up wild guess. This could be stretch, how about Queen Victoria, elderly lady with flowers in her hair.

Nate Maas said...

Ah DAG, you're in the right time period, but alas, no Queen Victoria in this crowd.

mary said...

Is it John Jacob Astor in the chesterfield coat and hat?

mary said...

Look at the little boy with the sword. Adorable.

Nate Maas said...

Mary, thanks for your guess. Unfortunately, these are not Astors, but I agree that the boy is adorable - hint: it is not the boy with the sword.

Judi said...

Oh, I see Mary got to have a process of elimination clue. Is it the dashing man in coat & Derby? Is that the Titanic?

Nate Maas said...

Judi, it is neither the dashing man in the coat and derby nor is this party on the Titanic, but thanks for guessing. In the words of Holmes, the game is still afoot.

RTD said...

To much drama for me to even try to guess.
I have better things to do.

Jan said...

The dapper looking gentleman in the back row is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

RTD said...

Very good Jan
ENM gave an excellent clue with "The game is still afoot"

Nate Maas said...

Jan, wonderful guess, but unfortunately I was not trying to mislead with my "game afoot" comment. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is not in this photo.

Nate Maas said...

So many faces, but who is the famous one? This person is instantly recognizable by name, but apparently not by appearance. Too much fun for me, so I'm extending the game until 6 pm Pacific time tonight. In case you missed it, the theme is "Cloak and Dagger." Good luck to you photo sleuths!

mary said...

Is the lady on the left Mata Hari? I didn't see the "cloak and dagger" theme before for some reason.

mary said...

Or...equally a stretch of the imagination...is the older lady with flowers in her hair Belle Boyd?

Nate Maas said...

Congratulations to Mary, who correctly identified the Mata Hari! Good work.

After Judi's first comment I was afraid the contest was going to end quickly.

recumbent conspiracy theorist said...

Baffled as usual sir. Great contest this time Nate. I did take the time to study the photograph closely. The lady on the left did catch my eye.

Humboldt said...

Toulouse Latrec, fourth from the left in the back.

Rob From Amersfoort said...

Great photo! I didn't realize these people were Dutch (the Indonesian people should have been a clue). Her real name was Grietje, which is still a common name in the Northern provinces.
