I spotted the above framed photo in a second hand store in Seattle two weeks ago. I thought the little boy was so damn cute. When I went to pay for it I was told it was Billy Oltman who won a Howdy Doody look-alike contest in the l950’s. A subsequent internet search resulted in little more information about darling little Billy. I guess it was his 15 minutes.
The connection to Lizzie: None, other than the fact I took the photo of the photo of him on the same shelf as my Parallel Lives books. But I bet this blog post title got you real curious, huh? LOL.
