Does anyone remember a space patch retailer whose business was "Apollo Pictures" based in Melbourne, Florida? The owner probably advertised in Countdown Magazine or eventually STS Mission Profiles. That was in the mid-80s, pre-internet days.

The business was one-man operation and I used to buy patches and decals from him but I can't remember his name. When he stopped (reluctantly, he wrote me but he was in his 80s), he sent four Apollo pictures (ones with red numbering) and I've always kept those as a souvenir of this nice guy. Ring a bell anybody? Thanks.

I have a letter from him... just looked and it was signed D.F. Waring, out of Melbourne.

Thanks. It didn't ring a bell in my brain. Must be getting old.
