For the Scamp in us All ca 1921
I liked this picture when I first saw it but I loved it when I noticed that Jim Moran seems to have a child in a headlock while holding a cigarette casually in the other hand. That blonde haired little boy is his son Nathan "Bub" Moran. I don't know whose house this is or who the friends are but I love how everyone takes no note of the play between father and son.
Kent said he had always heard stories that his dad (Bub) was a scamp and a handful for his dad (Jim) but for his mother, Virginia Moran, he was a sweetheart. Yesterday was the 32nd anniversary of Bub's death. This picture is dedicated to him and the scamp in all of us.
