Didn't he famously do a stint at the Batley Variety Club?

Can I be the first to note he's following local custom as is "bart hat"

The fact that he died at 42 haunts me. He looks 52 here.

Sorry, at first glance I thought it was Nat 'King' Cole. I can stop worrying now.

every time I look at this picture I like it more. Ilkley Moor (Baht 'at).

BLTP said...

I know Louis was always full of life, but I don't know why he's so excited about Ilkley, It's nice enough, the view from the moor's good, there's a little spa half way down the hill that sells hot chocolate on new years day, or maybe he's off to Bryans in Headingley for a fish supper, sadly we will never know.

That is one of the most extraordinary things I've ever seen in my life. Did I mention that I actually saw Louis Armstrong at the Batley Variety Club? I win.
