    Help Please! (Picture of a planner identification)

    Hello!

    I have a geography class on planning and as a kind of game we were asked to identify the picture of individuals on the class website for a small extra credit.

    There were 9 in all, and I have identified all but one.

    Any help in identifying who this lady is would be greatly appreciated!!!


    The other individuals were people like:
    Le Corbusier
    Jane Jacobs
    Lewis Mumford
    Élisée Reclus
    Patrick Geddes
    Peter Kropotkin
    Baron Haussmann

    Is something missing like a picture?

    I'm going to go with Freddy Mercury. You know from Queen. I would probably be able to make a better guess if there was actually a picture.

    I'll guess Robert Moses. He's stealthy and quick, like a ninja, which is why it's so hard to see him.

    I need help with homework too.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    No, no, no, it's obviously a picture of our own RJ. That's why you can't see him. No offense to the student (possible sarcasm) but we're all too busy doing our own image searches on , ahem, planning related topics, to give you an assist. Welcome to Cyburbia!

    Must be my ex. Her reflection doesn't show up on mirrors. I bet it won't show up on film either.

    I'm quite sure it was this image our young poster originally posted:


    I believe the unidentified planner is wearing the red dress.

    Yes, but as someone last year pointed out the more interesting story was that of the guy behind the girl in the red dress!

    I honestly thought that is what this thread was going to be about when I first saw it.

    so a new urbanist and a cubist are sitting in a bar and a sprawl-meister comes in...

    too funny that photo - I forgot about that one -

    so where did our guy go - no pics to post - I say we turn it into a caption thread when they do get posted - this poor newbie - I hope he comes back!

    I couldn't get the link to work...

    I'm going to say Miss July, but I don't think her picture is appropriate for this forum.

    Can't access Blackboard or WebCT pages friend. Try uploading the photo to ImageShack, PhotoBucket, or other host and post the URL it generates.
