ELLA FITZGERALD

ELLA FITZGERALD. Vintage 8×10 glossy black and white chest-up publicity portrait, by Bruno of Hollywood, of the sunny-voiced jazz legend, signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint ink, “To Bobby/Gee but you’re/swell. Stay that/way./Fondly/Ella/Fitzgerald.” Fine condition, with mild creasing in the left border; scattered mild handling and thumbing bends on the right side of the photograph; and the writing a shade light but quite readable against the light background. The writing is stronger on the actual photograph than it appears in the accompanying scan.
