Ephemera: Hawaiian, Ragtime, Country, Xmas

How about the double pineapple Kamaka uke power in the shot above? 1930s.

These guys look to be toting an Oscar Schmidt guitar, Lange tenor banjo, and Weymann (?) 5-string banjo. 1920s.

These "Border Riders" don't look like horsefolk to me. 1930s.

Something good to eat is my answer. 1920s.

Just... right. 1920s.

Here's Art Frye with his very own 5-string skills. 1920s.

I feel so bad for this late-'70s/early-'80s kid. That guitar is a nightmare. If he actually manages to play, he'll have had a will of iron.
