"Lucy and Desi" visit

Here are Lucy and Desi walking up to the house. Today they would have a whole entourage with them!
Lucy is reaching up to a wooden bar that is in the archway between the entrance and the living room. There is a small landing behind her at the bottom of the stairs. Lucy is telling how she would hang a sheet on this bar as a curtain and put on performances for her family and friends. The boy in the high chair is Lloyd's oldest son, Craig.
You can see the rod better here. Lloyd's mother would stand in the entry area and iron her salesman husbands shirts and hang them on the rod. It is still as it was when Lucy was a child.



This picture was taken by Lloyd's wife, in the kitchen door way.

Tomorrow "LOOK"

My daughter is loving these posts, Jean! They may not have travelled with an entourage, but they must have had a photographer there to capture it all =)

WOW.. the one and only LUCY!!!!
Funny little story: I am here visiting my friend in Florida and when either one of us returns to the house we greet one another with
~Lucy I'm home!~

These photos are of your collection? Do you have any autographs? I wonder how much these would go for or if they are hanging in the original home.

These are all Lloyd's personal photos. He has made several copies of some and given them to fans. Sometimes he is the tour guide on the bus to the house during Lucy Days.
