Once Upon a Time — Identity Crisis!

Posted on March 10th, 2010 by


Every once in a while someone will call in to identify someone in a “Once Upon A Time” photograph, and they will be wrong! How do I know they are wrong? When 4 people say “that’s my relative John Doe” and one person says “I think it could be John Brown,” I trust the family members. Sometimes I don’t know who is right, so I post both names hoping to spark conversation.

This week someone called in to identify all three ladies in a photo that was run in Baltimore Jewish Times in June. Maybe you can be the person who helps clearly identify everyone.

Who do you think they are?
