My mom has a cropped version of this photo which is just of Clarence’s face. Recently, when I found this full version, it gave new context for me. I don’t really know the story behind the four other guys, but my mom assumes they were work friends. What I find kind of interesting and fascinating is that Clarence’s left hand appears to be holding a cigarette. And yet, when you zoom in on it, it just seems to be a shadow there. Which leaves me wondering, did somebody remove it from this print? That seems like it would have involved some finagling on somebody’s part, since this was pre-Photoshop. A cover-up, perhaps?
