Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Are there Videos or photos of early banjos in the 20 century?

Does anyone know if there were anybody playing early and mid 19th century banjo in the early or mid 20th century, I've been looking for photos, videos, or audio and can't find anything. I've seen banjos that were later restrung with steel strings on the banjo database, probably ruining the banjo.

Not *exactly* what you asked for but check out Joel Hooks Minstrel Hall of Fame photo album. There's a bunch of players, some maybe with prop banjos and other with nicer looking banjos: http://minstrelbanjo.ning.com/photo/smith-2?context=album&album...
