Not great. I recognized Charlie Chaplin and George H.W. Bush. Also the MGM lion and Queen Elizabeth. That's about it.

Fun blog. Thanks!

I was in the right ballpark with a good part of them - but not spot on. Fascinated with all of them, though!!

I got three, five and eight and further in supreme dumbitude, I thought #6 was a young Johnny Carson!

Fun to play, though!

Cheers,

Not so well. But when I looked at the answers, every one was familiar to me. Isn't that how it goes?

Hmmm, I recognized the lion and Marilyn Monroe. I remember seeing the George Bush photo before but I couldn't remember who it was.

Great post! I got a few of them because I actually saw the photos recently on Pinterest. :)

Lucille Ball sure looked different.

Didn't get the gloves picture, nor JFK, Helen K. or Lucy. Chaplin was the easiest.

Got only 2 1/2 (although I didn't recognize Helen Keller, I knew that was Charlie Chaplain). Wow, Lucille Ball - who would have thunk it? And #7 - Market Steet S.F - I thought that was Hiroshima!
