That photo (i.e. of Funny Papa) is actually of Black Ace isn't it?

I don't want to make a whole new topic out of this, so I'll post it here in a picture thread.


Although it certainly is poor quality, I can tell I've never seen this picture of Leroy Carr before. Has anybody else?

I doubt it, he's definitely not playing that guitar lap-style, or with a slide.

But if it is, that's purty darn cool, I don't know of any photos of a young Black Ace.

Anybody know where these new pictures were found?  Were they part of the Paramount promo material that turned up a few years ago?

Here's the picture of Bo Weavil Jackson from the booklet that I promised in return, if this is of help to anyone:

And jaybird.
Question - are these pictures part of John Tefteller's stash that is being used for the blues images calendars?

Thanks for the welcome andrew. As for the photo, I saved it to my computer a couple of years ago. I vaguely remember finding it on the Old Hat Records website. They had scanned
a booklet from one of their releases, and put it up on the site. But I can't remember what Album it's from.

Yep it appeared in a Chicago Defender Columbia advertisment for the release of Aggravating Papa and those who own Story Of The Blues (1969 edition) can view it in its original context on page 94.

Found the photo (easy enough since Old Hat have so few releases - here's hoping for more!). It's in the booklet for Violin, Sing the Blues for Me. Alas, it is not Tommie Bradley and James Cole. The two are identified as Billy Smith (banjo) and Billy Russell (fiddle), circa 1912. Caption says Smith "was a former slave, with whips scars on his back to prove it." From the collection of Jim Bollman.

For dj, while they don't include Simmie Dooley, there are two photos of a young Pink Anderson in the booklet for Old Hat's set Good for What Ails You, both taken while Pink was touring with WR Kerr's medicine show. One of the photos is of Pink in blackface.

Penguin Guide to Blues Recordings' entry on J. T. 'Funny Papa' Smith mentions the photo on the Yazoo album is in fact of Black Ace. I've read this elsewhere as well.

Thanks for the correction andrew.
