Signed Portrait “For Joanne and Pepito, Our Love and Gratitude Always, Lucy and Desi” (1945)

Monday, January 1, 1945

For those of us who were dance students at the Pepito And Joanne Academy of Dance in Santa Ana, California, this framed and signed photo was a familiar sight in a place of honor in Joanne’s dark-paneled studio.  Inscribed by Lucille Ball, “For Joanne and Pepito, Our Love and Gratitude Always, Lucy and Desi.”
