Good question, I have often wondered that. My guess is that the women on the left of Gambino is his daughter Phyllis. She married a Dr. Sinatra, no relation to Frank. The guy to the right holding Carlo Gambino by the arm is tricky to identify. There are a few options: (a) James 'Jimmy Brown' Fallia used to be Carlo Gambino's driver. It's a close relationship and an important role. My gut feeling is that it isn't him b/c of his stature of the guys in the picture seems big than the pictures I've seen of Jimmy Brown. (b) It could be his son Joseph would would have been 37 at the time of this picture and therefore broadly fits the age of this guys (c) Thomas Masotto, Gambino's first cousin and messenger who were believed to have been extremely close. The people in the background and foreground I have know idea who they are.
