This photo is already under discussion. Check the thread started by Gay Mathis entitled,
"Newly unveiled photo appears to be Billy the Kid and friend (Newspaper story)"
No,it is not.The photo under consideration depicts someone with a distinctly heart shaped face and very different ears.
As I said on the other post: the eyes and eyebrows and the shape of the face are too different for it to be you know who. And let's face it, with him the mouth is always a dead giveaway! A few months ago BBB posted a picture of a re-enactor who was posing as him, and the mouth was a dead giveaway as to whom he was re-enacting! I understand he had to go to great lengths to produce the effects of Billy's mouth.
I find that eating a strawberry and sauerkraut sundae enables one to instantaneously produce the "Billy Mouth" look!Try it!
Your right, Anthony — his mouth and head shape.
I don't think it is our boy.
When looking at old photos the ear shape is always a dead giveaway even with two individuals who do look remarkably alike.I'd be willing to bet that I get presented with at least half a dozen old photos from the teens and twenties old bald older men with moustaches that the owner is certain is a photo of Wyatt Earp!
I think the guy on the left looks more like the proclaimed photo of Billy than the guy on the right.
Yaha, Buck ...
