An ancestor's autographed memory

Any photo of Carole Lombard and her beloved Palomino gelding Pico is worth a look, but there's more to the image than that. Here it is in its entirety.

Can't read the inscription? An enlarged version is below.

Now, more about it, from a new Facebook friend: His fgrandfather worked at RKO for many years, and one of the luminaries he knew there was Lombard. Great-grandpa recalled her fondly, saying she used to play cards with the crew on the set.

As for "Mary Francis," that was the man's daughter, my friend's grandmother.

Lucky folks.
