A wedding fit for a ‘wise guy’.
Posted by Big John on September 21, 2006
Here is another recently discovered photograph from around 1920.
Yes, it does look like the wedding of some local ‘mafioso’, and the back row does look very much like a selection of extras from ‘The Godfather’, but …
… it is in fact the wedding of my mother’s friend Mabel. That’s my mum in the dark dress standing behind the old boy who looks like the neighbourhood ‘Don’: and who has screwed up the photograph’s composition by sitting himself in a chair that was obviously intended for one of the bridesmaids. Bridesmaids! Blimey! Have you ever seen such a ‘gorgeous’ bunch ?
You can tell that it was a classy wedding by the way that the little bridesmaid seated in front of the groom…
……… is picking her nose with her left hand.
