    If I was a betting man, I’d say the guy on the right was Lefty Jensen.

  3. TonyF16 says:

    Are these guys still alive? Who was Bruce Davidson what was his affiliation with the Jokers?

  4. Mudge says:

    He was a guy who followed them around taking pictures and made them famouse. He put them in a book called Brooklyn gang.

  5. TonyF16 says:

    Also did anyone notice the guy on the right is wearing a wedding band. Kind of young no?

  6. TonyF16 says:

    I know who Bruce Davidson is I just don’t know/get where he fits in here. other than the book Brooklyn Gang? Is this where he cut his teeth?

    The guy in the right is Joey Douglass.

  8. Joan (Ferraro) Hanvey says:

    Never heard that name.

    Norman Mailer wrote a piece about the Jokers in one of the mags, maybe New York? Bruce Davidson was assigned to hang out with them and get the pics for the story..years later, he published a book called “Brooklyn Gang” and included a lot of the pics

    I would guess 1958 or 59…I will see if my brother-in-law can narrow it down..
