African - American Man with Guitar
This is a fragment of 8x10 photo showing an African-American man with a guitar, possibly from the 1930s. There was another fragment, now lost, of a Caucasian man wearing an old-style baseball cap, possibly with logo. He was holding a banjo or ukulele. Because it was 8x10, I suspect this might have been a publicity photo, and that this duo may have been professional musicians, or aspiring professionals. Background shows stacked cord wood and an apple tree, possibly rural or non-urban setting. The white fellow, as I remember, was early 20s in age, fair-skinned, possibly red-head, with pointed chin.
Mystery: Who is this fellow?
The guitar and the banjo are historically African American instruments as well.
