NEW YORK, taken in Weegee's room
on return from third alarm at Cliff and Ferry sts.
The man pictured is Gordon "Moon" Mullins who would later become an
Honorary Deputy Chief of the FDNY. He was one of the members of the Fire Bell Club of New York which is presently located at 204 East 23rd Street. He was employed for several years prior to his death as a Fire Alarm Dispatcher in the Manhattan Central Office of the FDNY and had badge number 11. The old Nash sedan pictured in some of the photos carried has maltese plate (#13) given to him when he was made an honorary chief officer (first an honorary battalion chief and later promoted to honorary deputy chief). (ref.:
Mand Library at the FDNY Fire Academy)
I believe this to be a portrait of Weegee's close friend, Gordon "Moon" Mullins to whom these negatives were given. It was his estate that preserved them after his death in 1971 (see #85). He is believed to be the source of many of the negatives whose attribution is suspect. He was a member of the Fire Bell Club and belonged to the N.Y.C Fire Patrol. He later became a dispatcher for the City of New York and was made an Hon. Deputy Chief.
