Wordless Wednesday: Same Person?

The man on the right had no brothers.
Here is an image of his only son
So...the younger man on the left...

I don't believe these men are the same individual. They have different ears, different eye shapes, different brows, and different noses. Their hair is parted on different sides of the head, and although that can change over time, I've noticed many men keep the part on the same side of the head because of the way the hair grows or to deal with cowlicks.

Interesting. When I looked at the photos, I saw nearly identical eyes, nose, mouth and ears. I wondered if the part was possibly the result of a photographic error producing a mirror image effect.

I think the man on the left actually looks more like the son (Everett). Any chance it could be another relative, John?

That's the problem with unlabeled photographs - they can be anybody.

Even if you think you see similarities between them and another photo, you can be wrong.

I have to agree with Miriam, these are two different men. Not only the ears, but the foreheads as well--one appears to have a widow's peak, while the other appears to just have a high forehead. The eyes and quite differents, as is the way the eyebrows end. As well the length fo the face.
The jaw line and chin are similar and the lips to some degree. Could it be a cousin? Or perhaps a doppelganger?
Just my two cents...:)
