Ephemera: Melody Sisters (c.1920)


Considering the amount of tenor banjos I'll be posting up later today, I figured a jo-centric photo would be right. This must've been a fun trio -- 5-string jo, mandolin-jo, and a uke! All look like fairly low-end but serviceable catalog instruments. The uke reminds me of the 20s Sears-sold really-cheap ukes (note flat, squared-off headstock) and the mando-jo is of the same type labeled "Concertone" and various other entry-level brand names from the time.
