BulletDoes anyone remember the guys in this group picture from an Asmara reunion in the Washington DC area around 84-85?

From Dick Lilienthal: This photo is the predecessor to the above group picture. From what Gene Price heard, into the 60s it sat in the window of "photo Celero's" shop downtown Asmara with the label: "ALCOHOLIC UNANIMOUS".

BulletOur resident dependent Linda Caudell-Feagan recently had a reunion with an old Italian friend from Asmara. He only lives two hours from her! Here are the pictures.
(Updated 4/14/04) Linda has just sent in another note about connecting with an old friend from Asmara she hadn't heard from in 30 years! (See it here) And she tells me they had a mini-reunion in Arlington, VA a few weeks ago and she sent in pictures of that reunion.
(Updated 8/13/05)Would you believe Linda found another old friend?
