I didn't know Esther well. She was a friend of friends. After she passed away, there was a box filled with snapshots she'd taken. Many were recognizable theatre celebs of long ago. Other photos were of her and others. Some photos had inscriptions on the reverse, which I've noted. Others had nothing. This box was destined for the trash bin. I saved it.

Just might be Merv Griffin on the left....if it is, his beard is unknown.

Yes, poor Merv. He had a beard for almost all of his career, and yet he was as clean shaven as Billy Haines.

This definitely looks like Merv. I've no idea who the chiclet is, but can tell you that's definitely Tremont Street in the background. It doesn't look all that different today. This pair are in the Public Garden, close to Beacon St.
