mickeygubitosifan: I really like the three photos of Scotty & the drawing of him too, which I agree really captures him sensitively. I haven't seen any other photos of Scooter from his Vaudeville days except for one close up of him between Mary & Johnny that's on one of the threads on this forum. I've love to see any more that may be around. Maybe make a Scooter thread and post them? (Please)
scotty1958: who is the kid standing next to Wally Albright in the Christmas photo?
Well so far I've posted one photo of Alfie and two photos with Scooter in them so now it's time to stop beating around the bush and post a couple of Harry. These are two of my favorite group photos that show him and other gang members in their own clothes.
I believe that was a birthday party photo - not a Christmas photo.
You took the words right out of my mouth - but I'm trying to figure out which kid is having the birthday. I think Jackie Taylor has this photo in her book and says that it's Spanky's birthday. I don't know where I put my copy so I can't look it up right now, but I'm sure somebody on this board has a copy they can check.
If it was Spanky's birthday, that would put the photo in early October - in fact, they could have celebrated Spanky's and Scotty's together. At first glance, though, it looks like the kids from "Hi-Neighbor," which was shot in January. The only way to correct this is to figure that Bobbie Beard would have been present even if he wasn't in the series anymore (logical enough given Stymie's presence), and that the boy in back is not Marvin Trin, since he wasn't around at the time. The boy in the picture may have simply been related to somebody at the studio.
