Boogie Woogie Feng Shui

Two more curiosities for my own online wunderkammer, the first coming via Spencer from the Wikipedia page on hermits.

Obviously, it depicts the Russian mystic St. Seraphim of Sarov, sharing his meal with a bear. (Bonus hermit info: Under the subsection “In philosophy and fiction,” the same Wikipedia page notes that “Herman’s Hermits were not hermits at all, but instead a creatively named popular music band.”)

The second comes via Sanam from the blog Shorpy. Sanam sent it over in response to my “dogz ‘n’ ladeez” post.

Photobucket

Obviously, it’s Miss Nancy Weeks with Mr. Rowe. It may initially seem obvious who is who, but think about it for a moment and you too will wonder if your first guess was correct.
