Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

I've just spend considerable time looking for a likeness of William Boucher as well as an advertisement or any other visual regarding his establishment.  Does anyone know if either exists?

I don't have a photo.  You might shoot Pete Ross an email or message on Facebook as he is the expert.  

I have been inside of his establishment, Pete took us there.  It was a coffee shop at the time.

There's a photo on this page, no idea what the provenance is or if it's a reliable source: https://youtubemusicsucks.com/controversial-history-of-the-banjo/

Thanks Joel and Andy!

Andy, perhaps the source for the photo came from this site.      https://vitabrevis.americanancestors.org/2016/03/1890-census-substi...
