If you just tuned in, I’m digging into the 1957 photos of a wedding of two men in Philadelphia. The film was left at a photo shop and the manager refused to return the pictures, which were saved by a store employee and later sold on EBay. Copies of the images were given to the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives, which is trying to identify the men in the photos.
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5
The first man on the left appears by himself in another photo in the set.
This fellow’s presence on the roll of film suggests some sort of relationship with the unidentified photographer. The furnishings look like the photo was taken in another home, but items in the background are worth mentioning. We have a carton of milk, and Lustroware salt and pepper shakers (so mid-century!) to the man’s left.

I believe I know what the emblem on the ceremony book is. It appears to be from the T Square Club which was a part of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. It is online thru the online digitized holdings (Catalogue of the Architectural Exhibition by the T Square Club at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts).
Great I’ll check it out. Thanks!
