  1. Ah… this brings back great and fond memories of a time and place I never experienced.

    Great man! Great photos! He will be dearly missed. I actually learned about him from your blog first and have been trying to find whatever photos of his I can view wherever on the net.

    I just purchased two photo prints, one of the Ella shot and the other of Dizzy. Is there a way that I can tell if they’re prints from negatives or poster prints?
