UPDATE: Alas, it's not her. "Not even close," according to spokesman Ryan O'Doherty. Oh well. I'm sure Rawlings-Blake threw down back in the day. Just not in this photo.

Take a look at the woman in the turquoise shirt at the bottom left-hand corner of this photo.

Is it current Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, partying at Hammerjacks in 1997? The resemblance is striking.

The photo is dated March 28, 1997 -- less than two months before they tore town the iconic Baltimore club.

Rawlings-Blake would have been 27 years old, if that's actually her.

What do you think?

We've got an email out to the mayor's office for comment.
