A tremendous early image showing this large 10 piece orchestra big band posing in suits with an array of early instruments including xylophone, drums, brass instruments, bass, clarinets and violins! The band is not identified however there is a photographer blind stamp at the base which reads Hartford, CT so most likely a known CT big band from that era.Quite worthy of further research. In Very Good overall condition. Image is clean and crisp with no scuffs, scrapes or damage other than a chip to the top right corner.
Thick, rigid paper board mat shows gentle corner and edge wear as well as some staining to the bottom corners. Image measures 13 7/8" x 10 7/8" and 20" x 16" with the mat.Please enjoy the photos for further item details and if you have any questions feel free to ask.
