Vintage Snapshot Adorable Costume Party Couple 1950s Cartoon Sailors Photograph

So much going on in this seemingly simple picture. An adorable couple in costume getting drunk at a party. They are dressed as sailors. Or clowns. Or sailor clowns. American or maybe French?
I dunno. I'm getting side tracked here by the Killer Bamboo walls and the (SailorClown? Cartoon dude hanging on the Bamboo wall playing a harmonica.

I just always thought they were cute. If you do, too, please buy this. After you've fondled it a bit, and looked thru a magnifying glass, and cursed your poor old eyes, or the light, or the photo, or heredity ( OR ME!), get a better looking glass and look again and tell me- are those egg crates along with the bows that decorate the ceiling? Yes, right? Just checking...

8/21 edit: the lovely Jeri just convo'd me that they indeed are egg crates- Jeri said:
"Don't know anything about the sailor decorating the wall but, when I was young, people used cardboard egg crates as sound mufflers. This could be what is going on here. They were used a lot to sound proof garages used for all those "garage bands" to practice in."

Show her some love when you've finished up here~ :)
Early 1950s, more or less.
Undated, unidentified. Back says Clairs or Clams or Clowns or- something, written later in red ball point ink.... Again, I am clueless, I just think they are adorable.

Approx 3 3/4 " X 2 1/2" plus super thin white border.

Very nice condition- a treasure to add to some art or an Anniversary or Halloween Card.
