Ephemera: Michigan Glee Club (c.1896)

Pretty fancy duds, fellas! I'm spying many nice old 5-string banjos in various configurations: banjeaurines, piccolos, full scale instruments... and a bunch of old bowlbacks from the day and a surprisingly-large pair of guitars (one of which looks a lot like an old Washburn). Interesting! This was dated 1896 on the back in its original eBay auction.

Anyhow -- it was brutal hot and humid all day long and right before I was going to take pictures of some of the day's work (including a gorgeous old customer-owned Bay State 5-string banjo) it simply poured down! Now it's too late (and wet) outside to take pics... so we'll wait until tomorrow.
