They note that two men who knew Johnson, Robert Lockwood and David Edwards, both failed to identify Johnson in the photo
Did they actually show it to Robert Lockwood? (died in 2006). The photo was "discovered" in 2008.

A third would be extraordinarily valuable
I guess Mack McCormick, who has the real McCoy, is sitting on a fortune. If it ever comes out of the mexican vault.

Here's the relevant part of the Vanity Fair article:

"Schein wasn?t having any better luck. In May 2006, he learned that two veteran Delta bluesmen, David ?Honeyboy? Edwards and Robert Lockwood Jr., were playing at B. B. King?s Blues Club in Times Square. For a guy trying to establish the bona fides of a Robert Johnson picture, the show was a real opportunity. In his memoir, The World Don?t Owe Me Nothing, Edwards writes about witnessing a clearly ill Johnson trying to play at what would be his last show, and later, seeing him suffer greatly from what he asserts were the effects of poisoned whiskey. Lockwood, meanwhile, had learned how to play guitar from Johnson during the years that the itinerant artist lived on and off with Lockwood and his mother in Helena, Arkansas. But when Edwards?s manager allowed Schein to show his picture to the musicians?on the condition that he not prompt them with Johnson?s and Shine?s names?neither identified the men in the photo. Still, Schein wasn?t ready to give up. The bluesmen hadn?t said it wasn?t Johnson, and there was another man who might be able to help. "

Schein acquired the photo in 2005. In terms of him showing it to Edwards and Lockwood, here's the relevant part of the Vanity Fair article:

Excuse my earlier comment. The article came out in 2008. Schein "found" the photo in 2005.

That picture needs to have a deep conversation with the "Long Island Medium".  Over a bagel.  No disrespect to the bagel intended. 

Forgive me!!!

No need to beg for forgiveness, Harriet. I think we should change the subject title to "The Easiest Person To Fool Is Yourself," one of Richard Feynman's favorite sayings.

Hey Phil - its 2017.

If theu believe it, it can be true for them.  And their opinion is equally valid (and worthy of equal respect) to everyone else's, regardless of whether its right or not...
