The photo above was taken by a "professional" photographer in New York City, just after Mel and Ella were married in November of 1941. The Gaiety Photographers of 1545 Broadway, NYC (likely in front of their store) mailed the picture to Mel for 1 cent, to their new home at 33 Lindon Place in East Weymouth, Mass.
