Ephemera: Americans in Europe? (c.1925)


The most curious bit about this group isn't the amount of banjos present but the pedigree of the banjos! A mid-teens Weymann tenor banjo and early-20s Gretsch-made Clarophone tenor banjo share the stage with what is an otherwise all-European crowd: German guitar-banjo, three German banjo-mandolins and a (probably) Italian banjo-mando, a (probably) German-made guitar, and a curious kit and two un-knowable violins.

Right, who knows! Nice hats, though, boys.
