A band of black musicians on board a ship.
Left to right: woman, bass drum; woman, fiddle; man, fiddle; man clarinet; woman, fiddle; man, saxophone; woman, mandolin; man, trombone; woman, mandolin (?); man, trumpet. The man and woman in the foreground with their backs to the camera are probably musicians, too. The leader conducts in the centre of the circle. The fiddle players are not holding the instruments in conventional violin posture, nor is there evidence of written music.
Location not known, 1920s. A private photograph.
