The water broke out in the morning time. We could hear it when it broke, just like a 'Boom!' It busted the levee through. And the water was coming. We could hear the river roaring. People was hollering, 'The levee broke! Get ready and get out!' - David Honeyboy Edwards, April 15 1927, from his bio

Is there any photo(s) of bluesman Willie Reed available? Any other photo from a more obscure blues player surfaced recently?
Thank you

...I'm guessing if there was one document records would've put it on one of their releases - but you never know, there might be one in the old blues publications

I searched on google books I didn't find a picture but I did learn that Reed was prolly backing T-Bone Walker in his '29 recordings:

...so blue I shade a part of this town.
