Everyday Art in the SGV: Joe’s Honeymoon

From JT Roane’s tumblr:

I went to shoot this mural and Anthony, the younger gentleman pictured here, invited me over to shoot it close up. We ended up having a half-hour conversation with Anthony and his father Joe who is the man pictured in the mural. The photo Anthony is holding is the original upon which the mural was based. The photo of Joe and his wife at the time of their marriage, was taken in 1951 in Albequerque, New Mexico. Joe and his wife subsequently moved to South El Monte where Joe and Anthony and another son still run a welding shop. LOCATION: Joe’s Welding, 13420 E. Valley, La Puente
