Who?

The eagle-eyed visitor may have spotted that my profile picture has changed again. Previously, I was Freddie Trueman - the Yorkshire fast bowler. Now I am somebody else - but a man who is also very much associated with Yorkshire. That's the only clue you are getting. Strange as it may seem, the top picture is of the same man who is represented in these next two images:-

    1. Yes Carol - I think I have got a personality disorder - namely that I have multiple personalities.

  2. Why, I do believe it's W.W. himself, and I'm not talking about Wee Willie Winkie.

    2. Ahem ma'am, I confess that I have referred to the great man in passing but have not devoted specially focussed blogging energy upon him. Nonetheless I thank you for checking back through the dusty shelves of my blogging history.

    3. No checking YP ~ that's for teachers. I have an excellent memory ~ that's for parents.

  3. Looks like Hippo when he was a lot younger and scared of something. The later ones, not so much.

    1. Ah! I can also see the resemblance. It's uncanny.

  4. I think you are now Captain Cook but I'm almost sure he was from Northumberland.

    1. You are William Wilberforce. A good choice.

    2. Captain Cook was from Whitby, as far as I know. At least the museum there says so.
      My first thought was Cook, too, but I think he would have been depicted with an object associated with sea-travels, such as a map or a telescope or something.

    3. Captain Cook was most definitely a Yorkshireman. Thank you for contesting Adrian's outrageous speculation Arian...but his second comment rescues him from prosecution.

    4. Capt. Cook was born in Middlesbrough. Which is just in Yorkshire but near enough is good enough.

  5. “You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know.”

    1. Thank you for sifting out this quotation Ms Thyme. I think I will include it when I explain who Wilberforce was in a blogpost.
