Nothing! Undated and unidentified.
I was in the mood for something a little newer, so here you go. What a classic 1940s look, right down to her snood. Check out the edges of his tie! But, of course, the longer I stared at this photo, the more I started questioning what I was looking at. What’s up with the wall behind her, that weird panel to the right that’s leaning at a precarious angle? It looks like it’s painted to look like the wall of a bar, with shelves of glassware. Could that be? Is that some sort of odd decoration, a bar that paints pretty glassware displays because it’s too cheap to afford the real thing? Then suddenly I wondered if this is a movie set or something. Would that explain the notebook thing he’s carrying under his arm? Oh, I’m probably letting my imagination run wild. I have another photo of a blonde in a bar that I think is this same woman several years later, implying that this isn’t a one-time occasion for her, but a pastime she periodically gets photographed engaging in. Well, whoever they are, and wherever they are, and whatever they are to each other, they seem to be having a good time, and that’s good enough for me.
