History Lessons with Leonard’s: Celebrating the Lives of Leonard and Ruth Tucker

Being that I am such a history buff, working at Leonard’s is a real treat! You can only imagine how much history is involved with a family owned and operated company that has been around for over one hundred years. Just the thought of exploring this rich history is exciting! To actually chronicle this information is beyond words.

Each Thursday I will dedicate our blog to a history lesson of sorts. This week you guys will get to see a video that we are extremely proud of. It celebrates the lives of Leonard and Ruth Tucker, the founders of Leonard’s.

Here is a little bit of background information!

At the turn of the 20th century, photographic pioneer H.M. Tucker was using glass plates for his negatives. By 1947, Tucker’s son, Leonard R. Tucker Sr., was working with his wife Ruth to build a business providing photographic packages for schools. Since then, Leonard’s has continued to implement the latest photographic technologies, including digital capture and printing, to produce top quality, state-of-the-art images for our customers. We are now the largest school photography company and yearbook printer in Florida. We’ve seen some pretty significant changes in the technological processes that drive our industry, but we’ve never wavered from our commitment to customer-centered, personal service for each and every job.

(Much thanks to Claudia and Randy for supplying me with all of the background information I have obtained.)
