"Professor Longhair" (Roy Byrd) photo - New Orleans

This is a large poster size photograph of "Professor Longhair",
taken by New Orleans photographer 'Barry Kaiser', he gave it to me when I left New Orleans and moved back to New York City in 1986.
I have it in a large frame on my living room wall.
