Thanks for posting...

It piques the imagination. If that's a pen in his hand and she's toasting him, it could easily be John. Or Campbell. Doesn't look like O'hara. But the dark curly hair.., yeah. I've seen photos of John from that time and his hair was curly. Campbell's hair was straight. So was O'hara's. The real giveaway, for Steinbeck I think, is the bags under the eyes. 

This post was a real treat. 

Thanks for doing it.

And good luck in your writing.

Monty, thanks for the acute observations.

The bags under the eyes is a good point. There were some sleepless times around here in those days. And they've returned!
