Band of Brothers: 1940

Band of Brothers: 1940

June 1940. Pie Town, New Mexico. "Farmer and his brother making music." Photo by Russell Lee for the Farm Security Administration. View full size.

 

Guitar Player

He must be pretty good playing up at the 7th fret like that. Also, look at the tanned arms of the fiddler player.

Levin Guitar

Starting (I think) in the late 1950's, Levins were sold in USA under the name Goya.

Background Photos

It would be nice to have a close up of those family photos in the background. Also of the ring on the younger brother's hand, which is unusual.

[Done! A quarter in the tip cup would be nice. - Dave]

Guitar

Wow, I have a guitar that looks almost exactly like that one. It's a 1940s Swedish-made Levin bought by my father, and I learned to play with it.
