This is an early photo of Mr Riley B. King (1925 - 2015) described as a blues singer, song writer, and guitarist - but better described as legend. B.B. King (his stage name) was born in Mississippi on a cotton plantation near the town of Itta Bena. His parents were sharecroppers. His recording career began with his first single in 1949. It took a couple of years for him to catch on, but when he did, a legend was born. He was married twice and had between 11 and 15 children. At the time of his death, on May 14th, 2015, he was living in Las Vegas. You could say "the thrill is gone" but his music and his guitar, Luciille, will be with us forever. Thank you, B.B!

Larry King, the famous television host, earlier in his career. Larry King was born Lawrence Leibel Harvey Zeiger on November 19th, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York City. Larry began his media career as an entry level support staff of a small station in Miami Beach, and got his first broadcast opportunity on May 1st, 1957.

Jackie, who at that time was filming his television show in Miami Beach, took a liking to Larry and honed Larry's media skills. Larry King went to national radio in 1978, and began hosting the famous CNN show "Larry King Live" in June 1985 which lasted until his retirement on December 16th, 2010.

The back of the photo says Uncle George King. The owner of the album was Clara Howard, who married Alfred Dawson and later moved to Australia from Santiago, Chile. Her parents were Adelaide Johnson and Benjamin Howard, b. Norwich Norfolk, so George King might also be from Norfolk.
