MARTIN AND LEWIS they're not


Think back to comic duos like Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis and it's always the same. One handsome guy to make the ladies swoon, the other to make them laugh. I'm getting the same vibe from these two fellas.

I have no information about this duo. They were in the Big Bag of Negs. Both snappy dressers. I can make up all sorts of stories about them, but I'll let you do that. Each person can bring what they want to the image. It's just another vernacular photograph giving us a chance to step back in time to some strangers history.

  1. Very interesting picture. The fellow on the left reminds me of Ronald Reagon but can't come up with a name for the other. Definitely the Martin and Lewis type team. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Ahh you have left us to our imaginations! One looks like Clark Kent, ready to dash for a phone book and the other leaning toward him, maybe Robin of Batman! Nice photo anyway and we can imagine!

  3. Your introduction to this photograph is absolutely perfect! I can hardly stop laughing. Wouldn't you love to know what happened before or after this photo? A wedding, church, lunch with the boss? The guy on the left sold the car at a loss, the guy on the right bought it at a great price? The guy on the right definitely looks chipper. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I also saw Reagan and Clark Kent when I looked at the guy on the left. The guy on the right is just wonderfully goofy with the whole pose.

    And take a look at all the windows. That's a lot of windows in that small of a space.

  6. I tried to imagine what they would dress like today; it's not nearly as nice an image. Maybe long shorts, flip-flops, and t-shirts.

  7. I was tempted to suggest that they might be Estate Agents, but they appear to have far too much character.

    Nice photograph. Love the suits.

  8. You get a feeling that the one you would really like to get to know is the chap on the right. He looks like the kind of amusing fellow you could happily share a drink with.

  14. The guy on the right must be a salesman of some sort. I think the guy on the left has just been drafted..the party was for him..he is off to become a dashing young pilot:)

  15. Oh yes, I like that idea. Drafted Army Air Corp and friend. Wow, could write a whole story about these guys.

  16. The fellow on the left has a bit of a heavy-set Burt Lancaster look about him.

    I'm loving what you're all seeing.
