(This was posted pre-Sepia Scenes. It seems so perfect in Sepia, I have edited it only slightly...)
I have only slight memories of many things when I was young, so the past comes alive on film. The picture I have here is one I remember quite well since a kid - it was framed on a wall of our living room (42nd Ave, Bayside Queens) and family room in (Wickham Drive, East Hartford). It is my father (Ralph II, left) lounging alongside Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. I would guess about 1954, and in Atlantic City where my father was a reporter for the Atlantic City Press.
Obviously the photo was staged, but the lowly reporter did have an audience with Martin and Lewis, the then hottest team in entertainment before their breakup in 1956. A unique photo this is. As the picture has aged, I sharpened added the antique edit which adds to its aged authenticity. A view at a different era.
