Summary: The young man to the far right is John Bogdan, a recent arrival to Philadelphia who joined his two older brothers, Dumitru and Dimitrie Bogdan. These four young people performed in a Romanian folk play, then a very popular activity among Romanian immigrants in Philadelphia until World War II. Note that they are all wearing Societatea Banateana-Vasile Alecsandri membership badges. (The other three individuals are unknown.)

In the second photograph, John Bogdan is wearing a small cloth ribbon made up of the Romanian national colors (Tricolorul) on the upper left part of his fur cap, and both men are wearing sashes made of similar but larger ribbons.
