The Mystery of the Famous-in-His-Day Brown Derby Newsboy

New, 8 comments

BEVERLY HILLS?: Any elderly glamour gals in the crowd recognize this man? From the inbox: "Picked up the attached unsigned photo at a swap meet. The old lady selling it said that this newsboy achieved a bit of fame because he was always stationed at the Brown Derby and he became familiar to the celebs of the day. She said this photo was the original pic used in a profile of him for a newspaper story back in the day. Any chance that your history-buff readers might know his name or be able to provide any information?" We haven't found anything on this fellow yet (we think he's in front of the Beverly Hills BD, but can't be sure), so how about it history-buff readers? [Curbed Inbox]
