Sharp bandsman’s image with horn, by a Washington photographer.
Wearing a fairly simple band uniform, this member of the brass section holds his saxhorn for this studio image taken by Warren & Johnson, Washington (Warren may have moved on, as his name is crossed out). The frock coat is embellished with quatrefoil below the elbows. The cap has some bolder braid around the base. The photographer has enhanced the photo with gilt tinting on button, buckle (on NCO type belt), and cap braid.
Trimmed both sides.
Fine quality, and other that trimming, in fine condition.
From the Michael McAfee Collection.
