Ephemera: Big Old Jo (c.1880)

Well, the Victorians were pretty crazy for "stuff" and this guy's living room is practically the definition of it. But -- props to him on that giant old "minstrel" style 5-string banjo.

On a side note -- the family and I have been having a bit of a sick day today and yesterday, so with that sloshy-headed feeling in mind, some projects are taking a bit longer to get finished.
