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."
