Does this man look familiar to anyone?

+6 votes

Context: This photo was found in the belongings of my now deceased great grandmother. The man in the photo also resembles my maternal grandmother, however this is NOT the man that we know to be my grandmother's father (she grew up without him...but we do at least have a picture of him/death certificates etc.). I know this goes WAY out on a limb but does this man look familar to anyone. According the the back of the picture they met in March 1943. My grandmother was born in Syracuse, NY before returning home to Massachusetts.

Thanks everyone for checking this out. It would one day be nice to confirm my grandmother's parentage 100%.

Handsome chap!

He sure is! I would love to put a name to the face...I've spent many years now referring to him as "Mystery Man". smiley

My suggestion is to send a copy to the branch of military maybe they could help you identify.  Also send copies of the photo to the historical libraries in New York and MA.

What a lovely photo of an evidently bright, strong, charismatic man!

You mention there is writing on the back of the photo, and I wonder what that writing contains, and whether it might provide us with additional clues (such as location of this building with such distinctive windows) that might help us determine who this is.  

I'd also love to know if anyone recognizes this type of uniform, since that could provide a clue in terms of which group this man belongs to at the time this photo was taken.
