This picture is of my dad, Bernard "Bernie" Falk, taken at the candy counter of the luncheonette he and my Mom owned in 1973. Thel-Bern Sweet Shoppe, Main Ave., Passaic NJ. Dad would sell the store in 1977 and move onto to the glamorous world of 'The Coin Business.' I think my brother took this photo with a Polaroid Swinger like the one in the box in the display case top left. View full size.
