Bruce Lee in specs

When I met my husband's brother and sisters in 1997, they were living in a high rise apartment. The only art in their sparsely decorated living room was an framed 8' x 11' photo of Bruce Lee. It hung high above their sofa. It reminded me of images you see of Jesus, Mao or Kim Jong-il's portrait displayed in homes in National Geographic magazine.(Sorry to put Jesus in the company of Mao and Kim Jong-il, but that is seriously what it looked like.)

Here's Bruce Lee back in the day sporting his infamous black rimmed glasses.  When I tried to find a photo of him wearing these specs in February 2011 there was nothing on the web. The closest I got was Aarif Lee.
