These Three: 1950

These Three: 1950

I have no idea of the relationship between these three, but they look straight out of a Hollywood gangster film, or maybe everyone back then looked like they were in a gangster film. From a box of found Kodachrome slides. View full size.

Just the opposite

Actually EVERYBODY dressed like this, and the gangsters just looked like everybody else.

She's Big Sis

Her clothes seem rather too young and fashionable for a mother of two grown men in 1950. (And she also doesn't look a generation older than the men to me). I'm betting on an older sister, who may just possibly be amused by the contrast between Mr. Sharp Suit (a salesman, perhaps?) and the huarache-wearing schoolteacher type on her left.

Mother and Sons?

The woman looks to be older than the men. I'm guessing this is a photo of a mother posing with her two boys

Careful, Gents!

The woman you are with is obviously Loretta Salino and you can get stung if you aren't careful.

No doubt about it

These are two bros. with their one sis. Now the hard part would be to discover where this photo was taken. I can't do everything.

Fashion forward

Is that Charlie Sheen on the right sporting sandals with dress pants and sports jacket?

I Know Why She's Smiling

She knows too much so the boys are taking her for a ride. But she's smiling 'cause she was tipped and in those pockets her hands are clenching a couple of snub-nosed .38s.
