You said " On the left:  The same man photographed on the same day in the same place" And I understood that day was Oct 2,1963.( the photo above) right?

Huh?

This is going downhill fast.

What do you not understand?

The photograph on the left was taken on October 2, 1963, in Mexico City.  The photo on the right was taken in Moscow, also in 1963 (if I'm not mistaken).

I said 3 years, because I know that photo of Khrushev and Castro could only be 60-63, right? My first impression is that they could have been the same guy, 20 years later., but you're telling me that's not true. The poor resolution and fuzziness might make his hair style look different, and curiously that change of hairstyle period wise is exactly what you might expect to see from a 30'ish Russian man with a slicked back look in the early's 60's to a more relaxed poofy look of that same guy in the 80's say. But of course you tell me it's not.

Thanks for the input.

Ciao.

PS  If my maths is correct, Leonov would have been 35 years old when the fuzzy, poor-resolution photo on the left was taken.

Does this photo taken of the same guy on October 2, 1963, make him look any younger to you, Kirk?
