I liked this ensemble picture, particularly the fact that there is a banjo, a flutina and a guitar. I believe it was Elaine, at AEBG that was telling me the story of someone who refused to believe that women played guitars in the 1860s.

Odd, the clarinetist has his hands reversed. ;)

You'd think that one the they'd try to get right...

My point exactly!

The guitar and the banjo are being held in pseudo cello position... lol

I have the 1861 Violin version of this book.  Exact same picture.

That's really cool Mike, I'd like to see it sometime. I have a couple of period tune books as well, we may have to have Mid Maryland gathering here soon. Messrs. Pasqurette and Hull are you listening
