The folks at the Boston City Archives have posted this photo of a Boston St. Patrick's Day lunch in 1960. Whom can you identify? See it larger.
the white guy.
a Kennedy, and a mafia Don lurking behind him.
p.s. I think technically the color scheme of this photo is just "white"... not "black n white"
That would be Joe Moakley...one of Southie's finest!!!
Ted Kennedy, Billy Bulger
Sully, Fitzy, Dickie, Mickey....
U.S. Speaker of the House John McCormack
John Hynes and John Collins are there
Senator Leverett Saltonstall at the mike (held by the very much alive Billy Bulger). Saltonstall has his hand on the shoulder of Mayor John Collins seated to his right. Ted Kennedy is two over from Collins' left followed by a standing Joe Moakley & Speaker John McCormack seated & in profile. Not sure, but it looks like Sonny McDonough might be way in the back behind and to the left of Saltonstall's head. The man with the glasses is sitting where you would expect the governor to be, but the fellow in the picture does not look like Foster Furcolo. Could it be his Lt. Governor?
The guy across the table from Collins looks familiar, but I can't come up with the name.
Now that you point him out, that looks like Foster Furcolo. Still no idea who the guy with glasses is to Ted Kennedy's right. Not John Hynes whose distinctive mop of white hair & wire-rimmed glasses is nowhere evident to me. As for Tip that just might be the back of his head on the guy diagonally across from McCormack.
I see white people.
Is that Tip I see?
Look at all those white men!
