Google his image and see what you think; here are a couple examples of a young Ollie:

Thanks, W-W, and of course to your friend, too, for the info on the streetcar signal! I guess having the pole behind it painted (white?) helped the signal stand out better.
The ears and eyes don't match Oliver Hardy the actor. Its close but not a bulls-eye. That's my take on this.
