Neil Slaven mentioned Big Bill Broonzy took a photo of Elmore James, Rice Miller, Little Walter & Tommy McClennan walking down the street . . . anyone ever see this or know where I could catch a glimpse?

Yes, first published in the French magazine Soul Bag in 1983 and later reproduced in a Living Blues. Probably been reproduced since. A couple of years back I was asked to scan for a similar enquiry on the web. I'll look to see if I still have it.

LoneWolf has a pretty blurry version of it on his McClennan/Petway Myspace page:



BTW, "photos" would be a good Tag on any Topic that has one or more.

All for now.

I don't think it's a case of resolution more one of severe camera shake by the photographer.  :)

However this weekend I'll see what I can do with the Soul Bag photo....

TMC was said to have been a "little fella" by both Frank Edwards and Eddie Taylor.

Sorry I can't do much better. Increasing the resolution just seems to increase the text "show through" from other side of the page. Click image to zoom in.

Hey that's a bit better, thanks BH. Looking at this photo has made me realize 2 things: as I've already stated, Tommy was a little fella -
& second: men's fashion has gone way down since the '50s!
