More names to faces, please

Last Wednesday we began asking our online audience to help us identify people who appear in pictures we've got in our collections. By Sunday we had published the first results, which were more interesting than we'd dared to hope.

So, today being Wednesday once more, here's the next installment: five men photographed by Benno Rothenburg. Rothenburg, a well-known photographer of Israel's early years, made aliya from Germany in the 1930s; the collection of his photos in the ISA covers 1947-1951.

 #8

#10

Personally, I think Mr 7 and Mr 8 are the same person, but I've been proven wrong on more important things in the past so who knows.
