What's the story behind this odd photo? It appears to be from about the early 1960s. Men and women are gathered at the end of a table with various interesting expressions on their faces. A bare pair of mans legs lies on the table, but the remainder of the body (if any) is out of frame.
On this bong gift set I can tell the top picture is Che but I can't figure out (with tineye's and google's help) if the bottom man is smiling Che or someone else ... any ideas?
I bought this photo at a yard sale today. The woman who sold it to me had no idea who the people in it are. She said she'd had the photo since 1960. It's clearly a lot older than that. What, if anything, can you tell me about it?
