My guess...

Date: early 50s

Rod:



Eyes, nose and chin, even hairline seems to fit the avitar better than the others. Some were close but this one fit best and the personality seems to run along well with the avitar.

Default Your guessed it

Yes Normcar, you have discovered my secret, I am a vampire. I was born in 1404. By-the-by, what blood type are you.

So I actually picked the right guy?

Please confirm...either by fly over or tooth shock.

Thanks!

I would guess a chamber music group circa 1930.

You folks have it all wrong,

This is one of touring bands that used to circulate among the Catskill resorts in upstate New York during the 1900s.

These entertainers were the equivalent of DVDs, Gameboys, and talkies back then. They obviously have been running into cash flow problems or the neighboring cabins complained of the noise during practice at night so they were thrown out of their cabin in the back and are now playing out in the open for spare change.

Wow - all those strings, and one trombone! I, by the way, at 5'2" and a scant 100 lbs (then) played the trombone - baritone - sousaphone - in my own school band.

Gosh, I can't say why, but this looks like it was taken somewhere in Europe.

Default The Bruckdorfer Band

The photo was taken in the mid 1930's in Czechoslovakia, probably in Eisenstein Bohemia now named Zelezna Ruda. All band members are Bruckdorfer's. My father is the 3rd person from the right. Events building up to 1939 would mark the end of this era for this family.
