Happy Birthday Andy Hanson

Andy, Candis and I had our 2nd annual Happy Birthday Andy lunch at the Zodiac Room today. He came bearing gifts including the "vintage print" below he made in the late 70s of my grandfather dancing nervously with Sophia Loren. I love the jealous guys behind him.
Andy has been documenting Dallas for over 40 years . His archive wows me. It's impressive that he found this photo among the rest.
