Photo of singers Frankie Laine (at piano) and Patti Page. The photo appears to have been taken in a recording studio; both vocalists were recording for Mercury Records in the early 1950s. Laine was born in 1913 and died in 2007; Page was born in 1927. The man at left appears to be singer Richard Hayes who was also with Mercury at that time.

Date Photo is not dated, but by the appearance of the singers re: timeframe, appears to be early 1950s.
