I love games! It looks a bit like a young Christian Ferras.

Is that a young... Jascha Heifetz? I've only seen pics of him in his later years but the look of the eyes is there.

A child prodigy, he began making phonograph recordings in Russia when he was only 9 years old. These early recordings are quite rare. On October 27, 1917, at the age of 16 he made his NYC debut in Carnegie Hall.  Shortly thereafter he began recording for the Victor Talking Machine Company and later RCA Victor. The Judaica Sound Archives at Florida Atlantic University Libraries has created four audio albums consisting of 32 of these Victor recordings produced between 1917 and 1922.

That's not a young Itzhak Perlman, either, I don't think.

Good guesses but none right so far. The closest was Kevin M - ROFLMAO
I'll give some hints tomorrow if noone gets it.

The style of the photo is too dated to be a young Fiddlerman amuse

I think Terry is right. Looks like it could be Yehudi Menuhin.

Headcheese when he had hair?

Oliver... no, Mr. Jim!

I think I am on the wrong track - I don't think the membership is old enough for this style of photo...

Albert Einstein?

Harry Houdini?

Bravo Kevin. Have you been doing some Google searching?
It was the Mexican citizen thing wasn't it.

Your turn to post a picture. That's your reward for winning.
