Summary

Top left image shows Horace Foreman, Morse, Louisiana, playing the violin while his son is beating a bass(?) obligato on the fiddle strings with two sticks. (Source: John and Alan Lomax in Louisiana, 1934, http://www.lomax1934.com/, 2014)
Handwritten on back: "2 top left unid. Cajun fiddler, Louisiana, N81"; "Baptism near Mineola, Texas, Summer, 1935, N18, N17"; "contact sheet no. N365."
For a cropped version of image on top row, second from left, see LOT 7414-B, no. N81.
Title and date devised by Library staff based on caption information and inventory lists.
Forms part of: Lomax collection of photographs depicting folk musicians, primarily in the southern United States and the Bahamas.
For the top left image (Horace Foreman), a Lomax inventory describes a separate print with the ID number "N69b." The inventory also notes that this separate print is missing; it might never have been at the Library. Thus "N69b" is available only as a frame on this contact sheet, "N365."
