Things Go Better With Coke and Shoes

Look who I found.  I went back to the antique store and found another picture of the shoes off, shoes on lady.  (Navigate back a few posts or click on shoe lady in labels.  I suspect I might find even more of her if I have the time to go through the photo bin, and if not...)  Anyway, different dress, different pose, but it sure looks like the same shoes.

The Statue

Anyone out there recognize the statue?  How about the location?  My guess is that it's still there, and people are still sitting on the base.

A Night At the Movies

Stamped on the back, "MISSION PHOTO SERVICE, 278 Franklin Street, Phone 3571, Monterey, California."  And it's dated, "9/15/41."

The Monterey of today is a town of millionaires, and probably a few billionaires as well.  It's tourists visiting the aquarium and shopping and high end boutiques.  In 1941 Monterey was a working class fishing town, the Monterey of Steinbeck's Cannery Row.

It's hard to know what this gathering was about.  There's a screen and a 16mm movie projector in the background, so they must have been there to watch a film.  The suit wearers have a banker vibe, while the open collar types could be captains in the fishing fleets.  But why were they all gathered to watch a movie?  I wish I knew.

Shoes Off

It's one thing to sit on a cannon with your shoes on, but standing on a man's shoulders, that's a barefoot job.

And she's sitting on a cannon.

Stick It In the Eye

I don't know why they're playing with that guys eyes, but at least they're not sticking their fingers in his nose.  And yes, those yellow streaks are where the Polaroid paper didn't peel off properly.

On the Road

Had she seen It Happened One Night, she'd know to show a little leg.

Beat Me With a Stick

I can't remember where I heard it, but beat me with a stick is something I've heard at one time or another.

Anyway, written on the back, "Rebeal 1947, Malcolm Salinger, Jan Castsanien."  Now, I guess that makes some sort of sense, two names, two people.  But then, "Peggy Schull, Jan Castanien, Salinger, Denison, N W Ines."  Okay, I've got two names and since Malcolm and Jan get named twice, I guess that's Jan and Malcolm fooling around in the photo, but why did Peggy, Denison, and Ines all get mentioned?  And Rebeal?  I did a search, and Rebeal is an actual surname, so is that yet another unseen person, or the name of the beach?  As usual, more questions than answers.
