Would love this pic, Oil Cans!

Did Johnny Cash know him?

All I can think of is the song "Tennessee Flat Top Box" when I see this.

Wonderful web

An image of the guitar, the "Gondolier". I wonder if this young man imagined himself to be in Venice?

About the right age

I wonder if he survived the war looming on the horizon. He looks like he would be in right age bracket for the war years.

Shades of Woodrow Wilson "Woody" Guthrie

Just the same, he does not appear to be hurting too badly for money with that ring and fancy guitar.

Looks well worn,

that guitar, though no doubt he is mighty proud of it.
