    My second good blues musician photograph in two years. Period original photographs of African-American musicians are hard to find, and I have been very lucky indeed.

    A washtub bass, two guitars (one which appears to be decorated, or possibly having inlaid wood?) and a fiddle. This is a small snapshot taken at what appears to be the train station, although it could be a streetcar, but the Western Union sign leads me to believe it is the railroad, and of course there is a porter who appears as interested as the others. The performers appear successful with sharp shoes and good dress. This would be a darn smart jug band if they had a jug. I am going to guess the nurses were on the way home.

      I would've loved to have them played: Ledbetter, Blind Lemon, Robert Johnson, Bessie Smith, Howlin' Wolf, Etta James, Muddy Waters, Son House, T-Bone Walker...Delta Blues are the roots of Rock N Roll! Love it! =)
