Supporting our love of history since 2003:

“The prints I ordered were exceptional in quality. The envelope it was sent in was rigid and perfect for mailing. I am a 74 year old Vietnam veteran who has been doing photography since I was a young guy. I think your website is one of the best I have seen for services and variety. Thank you, Chris”

  1. Congratulations on the newest addition to the Alexander family–and your new name is…. Grandpa, Papa Dave, or ?
    In the private collection gallery at the Bullock Museum (Austin,TX) is an exquisite photograph of elegant and beautiful Lena Geronimo, daughter of the legendary man. Do you have any details on this girl? I believe that she was born in Florida, but returned to the Southwest with her mother.
    Regards,
    Linda

    1. Thanks Linda! The other Grandkids call me Papa Dave, but we’ll see what sticks. We don’t have any info on Lena, but I’ll be sure to let you know if we come up with any. Thanks for being a Newsletter Reader and supporter! Kathy and I are fortunate to have you along for the journey 🙂
