Walt Disney autographed photo

I wrote Walt Disney when I was about 12 years old, asking him to please send me an autograph on a penny postcard I mailed him. I told him that the elementary school he attended in Kansas City MO was where my Great Uncle David Webb was later principal. The children who deserved an honor were allowed to ring the opening bell, but Walt Disney never made it until he returned as an honored guest years later--then he received this honor! So he sent me this autographed photo which I cherish highly. His first small artist place was on Troost Avenue in KC, and the last time I looked, that little building was still there!
