Ed's Epistle - Dean Martin Fest Photo

Good day pallies! I have another Dino-pic to share today. This is a from the Jefferson County Museum, a candid picture of what looks to be Dino and his mother scurrying through the parade traffic in downtown Steubenville.

It's a wonderful picture that captures the energy of the hectic day when Dino came back to Steubenville.
This is one of my favorites, and I hope you enjoy!

Is that Dino's first wife with him is this photo?

Any info as to when this photo was taken?

Eds Epistle said...

I think it has to be the Parade he came for back in the early 1950's..

Hi AOW!
Are you thinking this might be Betty?

Always On Watch said...

Ed,
If the early 1950's, then neither of the women is Betty.

The women standing more or less in front of Dino is definitely Dino's mother, IMO. Look at her hat and purse, both indicative of her being several years older than Betty would have been.

I wonder who the little boy is.

If I recall correctly, Dino returned only once to Steubenville after he went big in show biz. Jerry was with him. I'm guessing that Jerry is just out of sight on the right and that the other woman in the photo is Jerry's wife.

Check out this collage of photos. There's Dino with his Jeanne, and Jerry with his wife in the photo at the upper right of the collage.

Amazing photo! I can't wait to see more photos of Steubenville and of Dino if you have more.

Eds Epistle said...

Yes I think so too. Dean & Jerry were back just once for this type of parade.
Not sure who the boy is. I did once niw the dates, so I need to go back and check. Jeannie was at there at the parade also, I have a pic with her in the car with Dino.
That collage is nice, never seen some of those before!
