Jack Dempsey married Broadway star Hannah Williams in 1933, and the couple soon had their two daughters Joan and Barbara. Theirs was a rocky family life, with separations, reunions and ultimately divorce—all of which was closely followed by the press, including when Jack and Hannah sat on opposite sides of the chapel for Barbara's First Communion.
Nearly all are news-service photos from Acme, Associated Press, Wide World and the Philadelphia Record with intact or partially intact paper captions. One wire photo example has an embedded caption below the image. Sizes range from 5" x 8" to 8" x 10", and condition averages EX overall with evidence of typical newsroom usage in the form of crop marks, editorial outlines/accents, background masking, and peripheral handling wear.
