When You Wish Upon A Star

It is Dream Big Week at the University of Manitoba campus and Archives & Special Collections has been celebrating via social media by posting photos of some historical dreamers.  Continuing in this vein, here we have Franklyn Shinn and John Stewart stargazing at the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada Observatory in Winnipeg.  However, judging from the slightly menacing expression on Mr. Shinn's face, it appears to me as though his dreams may also be Mr. Stewart's worst nightmare.  Perhaps this apparent resentment is born out of jealousy due to Mr. Stewart's full head of neatly cropped hair and his decision not to choose a style of moustache adorned by one of history's greatest monsters.
