Vintage Photograph of Lifeguards from 1949 Evidence of a Lost Love Story

The photograph which was posted on reddit shows two lifeguards with a note on the back.

On the back the inscription reads:

"To Buzz, I'll always remember the times we spent together. All my love, Your Tommy".

The note is dated March 26th 1949, the location where the photo was taken isn't currently known.

Though it is entirely possible they may have been REALLY good friends the sign off does signal more romantic feelings.

It was of course a dangerous time back when the photograph was taken with no rights or protections for LGBTQ people, rather laws which were against them.

The photograph has since went viral with many celebrating the love between Buzz and Tommy.

Will we ever learn more about the two men? Time will tell, we certainly hope so!
