    Sam Babicci holding saxophone, originally uploaded by Powerhouse Museum Collection.

    This image comes from the Thomas Lennon commercial photography archive that has been recently added to the Commons on Flickr. Sydney born photographer, Lennon, ran a studio at 64 Victoria Road, Drummoyne, NSW during the 1930s and 1940s. The collection consists of 796 negatives are largely of balls and dinners held in Sydney, but also include weddings, funerals, work events, parties, portraits, pets, fashion, horse races, and various places and events in Sydney.

    This particular negative has this inscribed on it:
    ‘This negative was stored in a box inscribed in pencil ‘Ces Morrison – 17/11/33 / Sam Babicci – 18/11/33′.’

    One of the comments from one of our members in Flickr states:
    ‘Sam Babicci was a restaurant manager and bandleader in Sydney during the post-war era. He managed Romanos.’

    Do you have any information about Sam Babicci? I would love to hear about it if you do!
