About a decade ago, someone, I think it was Gus “The Mapinator” Walker, noticed that a random photo of a Pamunkey Indian in our archives had a striking resemblance to the lead guitarist for the Rolling Stones. Gus whipped out a comparison and put it on the wall next to his computer. When more than one person visiting the True West headquarters laughed out loud upon seeing these historical twins, we thought our readers might enjoy them as well.
Although Historical Twins ran in every issue for several years in the mid-2000s, we ultimately decided the material for it was getting a tad thin, and we killed it. But just looking at these remarkable twins today makes us want to give the department another go!
