What I know about it:

Undated and unidentified.



I went to the used bookstore near my apartment to look for a specific book for a friend’s birthday.  Defeated in my quest, I wandered over to the boxes of vintage photos, uncertain if I wanted to buy any.  But then I saw this one, and suddenly I was off on a buying spree.  I got a bunch of fun ones to share, but here is the first one.  It makes me smile.  I love the colors.  I love their delighted expressions.  And I’m intrigued by what’s going on here.  Are they dressed for a party?  Are they at the party?  Is this their house?  Why is he holding a single candle when there are three more matching ones on the table behind him?  Is the other thing in his hands some sort of food package, like a TV dinner?  Is the red thing in her hands a piece of glassware that’s part of a set with the one on the table behind her?  Does her giddy expression come in part from whatever is in her glass?  Whatever is going on here, it looks like a good time.
