We admit that for avid fans of our old political photos, identifying half of the men in this photo is going to be a piece of cake, so we put up any pretenses?
Obviously, that is former councilman Thomas Ognibene, former governor George Pataki, former state senator Serphin Maltese and former mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Can you figure out what those four men had in common besides all once holding elected office? That’s right, they were all Republicans!
So while we can’t identify the other four men in the photo, we are going to take a wild guess that they were some bigwigs in the Queens County Republican Party at the time, possibly even back before the Queens GOP became a fractious mess of two separate camps fighting for control.
So, if you think you can identify the other four men in the photo, drop us a line at email@example.com.
