“A PICTURE SPEAKS A 1000 WORDS” – By Des Kelly

 

Sent to me, by a good friend, Errol Lynch, are a bunch of truly fascinating photographs of both famous and infamous people. Especially for the members & readers of eLanka, with the compliments of both Errol & myself, here they are, folks. If these “pictures” do not conjure up some precious memories, I really do not know, what will.
