UnKnown Celebrity _RTP_2_20_14 SFW

The tall guy with the black jacket is Harry James, famous trumpet player and band leader.  What he was doing in Pensacola, as well as who the other people in the photo are, is a mystery to me.  In fact, the only thing that I knew about Harry James was that he was the first big-band leader to hire Frank Sinatra back in 1939.  Here is a link to his Wikipedia site.  I also saw that he was married to Betty Gable at one time in his life … that I am impressed with.  Betty Gable, I believe, had the number 1 pin-up / photo for the guys in WW II.  If anyone recognizes any of the other people in the photo, please let us know.  Also, if he was in Pensacola to play a concert or whatever, let us know.  Thanks for looking … Frank
