Who were they? Known and Unknown Mandolin Ensemble Photos From The Past
This is something Dave Betts has wanted to do for a long time… post pictures of “unknown” mandolin groups (or “known” ones… it’s fun to recapture the local history of our favorite instrument). We’ll try to use the power of the Internet to see if we can’t collectively identify some of them.
If you have run across any similar pictures, send a scanned copy of the photo along with a description to firstname.lastname@example.org.
