Man and woman in a bar setting

What it is:

Photo measuring 4.25 x 6.5 inches.

What I know about it:

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.

  1. What is not generally known is that they are actually sewn together. Her right arm is stitched to his pants and likewise their hands are glued. As such, they have to take small stutter steps when they walk.

  2. …and why is that fish behind the counter upside down…hmmmm.
