Willie Smalls, New York

Willie Smalls and the Modern Men's Social Club in Manhattan, New York.

Does anyone have information about this photo?

The Mystery

I found this photo and a few more in an automobile that was junked for scrap. Does anyone know anything about the Modern Men's Social Club or Willie Smalls? I believe he played the horn with various bands.

Filipe Medeiros There was a "Willie Smalls of New Haven, Connecticut" according to this site: [external link]

On further research, there was a group called "Willie Smalls and the Willie Smalls Singers" cited as an inspiration to this man [external link]

Not sure if this helps!
