Jack Bradley Collection


From 1959 to 1971, Jack Bradley was one of Louis Armstrong's closest friends. With unprecedented access to the trumpeter, Bradley was able to snap photographs of him at home, on the road, in concert and in his dressing room. The Louis Armstrong House Museum now holds the Jack Bradley photographs in their entirety, a monumental collection of thousands of images, the majority of which only survive as negatives or on contact sheets. In honor of our current exhibit, "To Jack Bradley, the 'Greatest' Photo Taker": Treasures from the Jack Bradley Collection we have made an exclusive selection of these photos available.

Louis Armstrong House Museum Collection


When Louis and Lucille Armstrong moved into their home at 34-56 107th Street in March 1943, they probably didn't realize they were moving into the last home they would ever own. Louis loved his Corona, Queens neighborhood so much, he refused to even consider moving. Lucille would hire top interior decorators to keep their home looking modern and sophisticated. Today, the Louis Armstrong House Museum reflects the way Armstrong's home looked at the time of Louis's death in 1971. Capture your own snapshot of Louis & Lucille's home with these Print-to-Order images.
