The folks at the Boston City Archives wonder if you can ID any of these folks posing with Ray Flynn and Santa. See it larger.
Aunt Bee from Andy Griffith show?
Just spent 1.5 years volunteering at an orphanage in Tanzania after quitting the rat race. I'm not kidding. She also went to a far better college than you. I guarantee it.
Your snarks are misery, not funny at all.
You constantly crap on native Bostonians like we are some type of zoo animal for you to gawk at and poke fun. Give it a rest.
Calm down, Deputy Fife.
In your head.
You are a mouse down hiding under the stove sticking its snout out occasionally to see if there is something you can nibble on.
That's my condo!
Santa and Flynn.
That Santa stand-in must be Tom Heinsohn or Dave Cowens.
Right in front of bespeckled Santa.
Actually could be Ben Affleck
...You say Jets
is Andre the Giant.
Were harassed by Mark Wahlberg?
It says East Boston on three of the jackets.
A variety of kids exactly like the ones that were victimized by the same Catholic church leaders that he has defended since day one and to this day?
tom menino on a milk carton?
Marky, Ricky, Danny, Terry, Mikey, Davey, Timmy, Tommy, Joey, Robby, Johnny, and Brian.
Is that Whitey Bulger playing Santa?
Unless he is standing on one of his associate's shoulders.
Apparently there is no answer forthcoming. Sad.
Lombardo's near Sumner Tunnel? East Boston Social Center? This is before carpet-bagging speculators took over, when the town was filled with good people who didn't have a lot of dough, but they were obviously pretty happy.
+50% chance City youth workers shuttled these kids to the event... Boston Community Schools / Boston Community Centers.
While I don't recognize any of the adults (I worked for BCC but later, under Menino) but that's where I would start in terms of ID'ing... go to the oldest employee at one of the BCYF centers in Eastie and ask them.
Actually, the former ED of BCC is my FaceBook friend so let me see if she recognizes anyone.
Is the City Archives open?
