The world lost a long time figure in the Acting world this week, Kirk Douglas.
But did you know that he has ties to Albany?
Albany Archives tweeted this touching picture of one of his visits to our area back in the 50's
Look at how young Michael was (taller one). Kirk also had two more sons Eric and Peter (not yet born)
"Kirk Douglas was a frequent visitor to #Albany.
Here he is with his two sons, Michael and Joel, at Union Station (now Kiernan Plaza) on Dec 26, 1953.
They stayed at his sister's family's home on Kakely St. celebrating the Christmas holiday."
