This photo was taken in 1934. The little fella (yes, fella) is now dead. He was quite famous. The man standing next to him was his namesake.
Update: Not even a bite yet? Need some more hints? Here you go:
- He had a famous sibling.
- He died recently.
- I think this picture was taken on the east coast of the USA.
- The grown-up in the photo (who is the namesake of our kid in question) was a trusted aid to the kid's father, who also may have been famous at one point.
- Remember, the he is a boy (they dressed funny back then).
- All of these hints are true, but may not be complete!
