Flag Day 1973

Unfortunately my scanner software isn't working, and I only got to see the beginning of the Flag Day Parade this year, but I thought I would try to have some photo-phun with these old snapshots I found a few years ago at the Watnot Shop. (Click to enlarge)
Seven photos taken on Flag Day in 1973; all near the corner of 5th and Warren.
In 1973 the parade still headed up Warren Street rather than down, 

and there was primo seating atop what is now the Nolita Cafe.


Here's a then-and-now composite showing south side of 5th and Warren; none of the buildings in top photo are there now.

Who is this young couple?
...and where are they now?
