Photograph, Cabinet

Accession Number: 2004.3

Description: Black-and-white photo is mounted on a white card. It shows three men, who are dressed in similar jackets, vests, and bow ties, seated with their musical instruments. The man on the left is holding a violin, the man at center is in front of a piano, and the man at right is holding a flute. Each has short hair, a mustache, and is wearing tinted eyeglasses. "Mowrey, E. Main St., Ashland, O." is blind-stamped along the bottom front of the card. The reverse is blank. The musicians appear to be those shown in another cabinet card in the museum collection (accession 2002.153), in which they are identified as the Blind Trio Concert Co.
