Ephemera: Dads, Granddads, & Dangerous Kids

This 1890s(?) pair Cajuns-it-up by the front stoop.

Any idea what that instrument in the middle is? It looks like a very different variation on a kora. 1910s, per the other similar auctions listed by the eBay seller.

Taking a break with ye olde tailpiece guitar. 1920s.

This marching-band-Dad has his hands full. Poor Mama! That's a lot of noise. 1930s.

Now that's an accordion. 1930s.

Picnic time! 1940s, judging by the painted-marker-fretboard-guitar's style and tail.

Never fear to start 'em even a little too young! Nice old Vega, there. 1920s.
