From the Joe Bushkin website — — a galaxy of stars, seated in a club:

Louis and Lucille Armstrong, Eddie Condon, a lovely young woman (unknown to me), Jack Teagarden, Joe Bushkin.  Circa 1949, perhaps?  Oddly for a nightclub scene, the tablecloth is almost bare (no glasses, whether full or empty) and Louis has his handkerchief.  Was this at one of his gigs?  Research, please!

The Bushkin site has many other interesting photos (unidentified) and a video of Joe with, among others, Judy Garland and Bing Crosby.

P.S.  Maggie Condon (Eddie’s daughter) has informed me that the attractive woman is Joe’s wife Francice.

One response to “MAY I JOIN YOU?

  1. The lovely young woman could be Joe Bushkin’s wife? She appears on some other pictures on Joe Bushkin’s website I think.
