Emma Mae Gallery 5 558, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

Back in January I did a small post on Emma Mae’s Gallery by the Reeves Center on 14th Street because there was an awesome Thelonious Monk painting. So just recently I received an email from the owner, Rev. Sandra Butler-Truesdale. I stopped by this weekend to say hello in person and of course the gallery is as cool as ever, especially if you like jazz. Anyway, she mentioned that she had this photo and would love to identify all the personalities. Some are easy like Sonny and Cher and Sammy Davis Junior. But not all the folks are easily identifiable. I told the Rev. Truesdale that I’d be happy to post and see if the PoP and flickr communities could help. So if you know the others in the photo please leave their name in the comments but try and be as specific as possible ie second woman on the left.

Also starting tomorrow May 21st- Saturday, May 24 (12pm-8pm) the Gallery will be featuring ‘Anthony Phillips of Woodcrafts by O’Banion’.
