Bob with Strange Men

December 18, 1943

Here is my father with two mysterious men. They appear to be at a Christmas Tree Farm. If these two men are mobsters, then I think this tree is about to get “wacked”.

Notice that it is winter but dad is wear short pants with some kind of stockings. Also, who goes to a Christmas Tree Farm in a suit and tie? I guess people were fancier back then.
