The Golden Age of Lost Television

"One Man’s Obsession with the Past creates a wave of Nostalgia”
                              -Ron Alexander, The New York Times

  "(Ira Gallen is) One of the Industry’s Top Tracers of lost film and Television.
                                      - New York Daily News

"These Commercials and Television Shows are a Social History of the way we were

over fifty years ago, it’s more then a Nostalgia buff can stand.”
