Biographical / Historical:
Robert L. Sardino was born in New York state December 11, 1897, the son of John and Palma Sardino. Both of his parents were born in Italy, and Palma notes in the 1920 census that she had immigrated to the United States from Italy in 1881. His father died at an early age and by the 1920 census Palma was listed as being head of the household. Robert joined the International Association of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), local 376, on January 24, 1915. According to family oral history Robert began work at the age of fourteen, in the 1920 census he is noted as an "operator" in a "picture show." His brothers, Frank and Alphonsa, were both in the motion picture theater business. By 1930 Frank is noted as a "theater proprietor." Alphonsa is noted as a "picture theater" manager as early as 1920. For the greatest part of his life, Robert worked in and around Syracuse, New York. During his working life, he was employed by Paramount-Publix Corporation, later known as Paramount Pictures, Incorporated and also the Schine Corporation theater owners and developers. He worked in Syracuse at the Paramount Theater which was demolished in 1967. Family history maintains Robert worked until he was seventy-five years old.

Robert served in the military during World War I. On his registration card he is described as being of medium height and build, grey eyes, and black hair. He was then working as an auto mechanic in Old Forge, New York. In May 1928, Robert married Florence Owen, daughter of David and Charlotte Bostwick Owen. They had two children, Delores and Roberta. The marriage ended and in the 1940 census Robert was living with his daughters and was noted as being a projectionist in a movie theater. Later that year he married Irene Boniface Simiele, also a divorcee, with a young son, Joseph.

Robert died in Syracuse, New York on February 3, 1981.

Biographical / Historical:
Frank Paulin, born in Pittsburgh in 1926, spent his early life in New York City and Chicago. He apprenticed at a photography studio in Chicago at the age of 16. In 1944 at 18, he went into the Army, serving with the Signal Corps in Europe, where he honed his photographic skills by shooting images of devastated cities. After the war he returned to Chicago and studied first at the Chicago Art Institute, then the Institute of Design with the famed artist and theorist Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and photographer Harry Callahan. In 1953 he returned to New York to work as a fashion illustrator, and studied with Alexey Brodovitch at the New School. During this period he began walking the streets at night and developed his interest in street and documentary photography. His work has been exhibited widely, beginning with the pioneering New York gallery, Limelight, in 1957.
