The young Costello doppelgänger is, yes, your humble correspondent, somewhere between years 1960 and 1962 I reckon. I suppose I am so cheerful because the photographer is dangling a raw steak out of frame or something.
Here's the Christmas 1970 Polaroid I alluded to in the post about my mom, below. From left to right, brother Michael, classic rocker me, sister Kathleen, and a pleased Santa Mom in the background. Santa Dad took the shot. I've completely blocked out all memory of the drum kit and I don't even know to whom it was gifted. Seriously, what were my parents thinking?
For aficionados of early 1970s corporate brochure portraiture: Here's my mom with her colleague Yvonne Rivera, posed for a shot in the "Who We Are" section of the glossy handout for Yegen Associates, the small finance firm (I think) where my mom took the job that turned my sibs and I into quasi-latchkey kids, with dicey but not entirely catastrophic results.
