Photograph article dated May 9, 1962 partially reads, "Alfonso Pineda cannot be describe as a physically big or a tall man but he does have a big smile to go with a big gracious attitude toward his fellow man. Alfonso likes people and he likes his work. He is an expert leathercrafter and maker of fine gun holsters. Located in his year-old North Hollywood shop, Alfonso is one of the top leather workers for the custom shooting trade. He is a craftsman of the old school who learned his trade from his father." Pictured is Valley Gun Queen Eva Bernard, examining Alfonso Pineda's workmanship.
