Fiddling on the Porch

Fiddling on the Porch
A Vintage Photos Theme Park photo for the monthly theme of pick your favorite theme(s)—why is it (are they) your favorite(s)? (submit a photo on this topic each week in addition to—or instead of—a photo for the weekly topic).

I've always enjoyed photos of musicians, musical instruments, and other musical topics, especially informal ones like this picture of a boy playing a fiddle on the porch of a rustic house (see a cropped version for a slightly enlarged view).

This is an unused real photo postcard with an Azo stamp box (four corner triangles pointing up) on the other side that suggests a date that may be as early as 1904 to 1918. The name "Sam Lewis" is written on the verso, though I haven't been able to track down any information about a fiddler by that name.

For some other interesting music photos, see Frank Meger's Miniature Masquerade Ball and The Olzen Accordion School, Brooklyn, N.Y.

What a treasure trove!

That grim expression makes me think Beausoleil's version of "Baby, Please Don't Go."

Yes, musical instruments! I hate to leave any musical instruments behind at garage sales, like orphans they need a good home! But I should probably stick to photographs like these since I can't play that many instruments and don't live in a big house!

These are all fascinating. Can you imagine hearing all those accordians all at once?

Good choice of theme and a charming example, Alan. His hairstyle reminds me of the character "Alfalfa," from the 'Our Gang' film series of the 1930s.
