Dale Roberts and the Dame have a collection of more than 2,700 autographed self portraits that run the gamut in the entertainment, sports, local culture, and even layman realm. Most are filed away alphabetical in binders, others in boxes sorted and awaiting their filing. The best hang on the walls of the studio in the Duck Building. Anyone is welcome to send their autographed self-portrait to Mailarta's Portrait Palace, 1324 Broad St., Victoria, B.C., Canada V8W 2A9. Don't be surprised if there's a little return mail.
