    The bomb disposal officer was taken late 70s, early 80s judging by the style of the van and the road signs.

    It is very tiresome seeing that supposed Lincoln photo still bantered about as authentic.
    As mentioned in the comment above by Steve – Denise Hight the ears are one astoundingly obvious disqualification for being Lincoln, yet the owner of said photo is obviously continuing with the charade to make money. Heavily lidded eyes are really the only thing that connects the two (Lincoln and the anonymous sitter). It’s a scam. Yes, 11X14 copies cost $100 at his website.

    The rest of the photos are just wonderful!! Please find us some more!!
