I don’t know much about the dapper man pictured with what I imagine is his seaplane. I believe it’s a 1939 model Piper Cub J-3 and judging by its appearance it could be new or just a few years old. My Mom took this picture with her trusty Kodak 620.
Since my Mom grew up in New York City and knew her town like the back of her hand I’m just guessing that it was taken somewhere in New York in the early 1940s. It could be in Long Island Sound or on the Hudson but I don’t know the background of the image. It’s part of a vast trove of pictures that my Mom took over the years that I have no idea of the who, what, where. Good shot though!
