Walt Whitman, 1887

A portrait of Walt Whitman in 1887. Whitman was born in 1819 and died in 1902. You can see other pictures of him on AncientFaces but this photo reminds me of Santa Claus!

Walt Whitman was a famous American poet and journalist, perhaps best known for his poetry collection "Leaves of Grass."

Kathy Pinna Doesn't Walt Whitman look a bit like Santa Claus?
