She's got a lot of work ahead of her. The Curley Bunch. She was widowed and had kids, and Curley had a mob for her to manage.

This is how comments were left. The lady in the headgear had just expressed an opinion that she enjoyed a nice game of stickball and a hunk of licorice on a sunny Sunday afternoon, and now she has to wait as a series of men enter into the record that she's a stupid ***** and how dare she express an ill-informed opinion over a game of leisure intended for gentlemen.

Thanks for playing, folks! This photo was taken in 1945 in the Boston Election Department at Old Boston City Hall on School Street. This photo shows William Arthur Riley putting in his application for nomination papers to run for Mayor against James Michael Curley and other candidates. Riley's wife is pictured with him

In 1945 Mr. Riley was the first to propose what is now Government Center
