Bob Brown explains this photo: "I see Ed McCullough talking with this older bearded guy and a younger fellow. I want to get a pic of Ace in his element, so I shoot a few of the three of them in conversation.

Pretty soon I get welcomed into the conversation by Ed, and I try to let the bearded gent know that he’s talking to someone who’s quite important- the Ace! The bearded guy then pauses and asks me if I know the story about how Ed acquired the moniker of “Ace”. I said no, and he then proceeds to tell me that back in the day, he and Ed were sitting around trying to figure out a nickname for Ed to counter Jerry (The King) Ruth. He said to Ed, “What tops a King in a deck of cards”? An Ace of course! He then introduces himself as DRI member Jim Cooper whom I had hoped to meet someday. His son CJ and his trusty Bassett Boogie were with him.
