The one to the right was of an image from the 1940s taken of my client's Father, Howard, Senior in NYC-Harlem and was a wonderful gift from Howard, Junior to his Father and to multiple members of the family for Christmas.
Howard reported back that it was the best gift he'd ever given, thrilling everyone.
