Lucky and Pauline

The photo is showing wear, but the content is just perfection.  The young couple, newly in love, gazing at each other to discover every small thing about each other.  Pauline touching Lucky's jacket ...  just too good.

Craig & Alexis, Bob & Dolores, Bob & Betty and Loretta

It is November, 1947, and a group of entertainers are departing New York for London, for a royal command performance.  Of course, we need to capture this momentous event on camera.  Five of the party are smiling/laughing.  Betty is trying to smile, but not making it.  She's probably upset she did not get the memo re the ladies wearing mink stoles.

Now, Bob is having a really big laugh ... slightly bent over, his mouth open wide. 

Wish I were in on the joke.

While suffering from a nasty virus ....

Isn't young Bob just too cute?  My, my.   Makes my day.  Helps lift my achy, fatigued spirit.  You just gotta smile looking at this photo, right?  The best medicine available.

Florizel and Miss Vandeleur Enjoy London

Two actors enjoying their work ... Or, just what was going on behind Bob's cape?
