What a sweet photo. I love the empty chair next to him, like he's missing his music partner.

BTW, did he really play the violin on the right? Or is the photo reversed? It's rare to find someone who plays it on the right, but I know there are a few who do/did.

Hi Elizabeth,

I didn't reverse the photo, this is from a scan I made at my uncle's house. The photographer could have reversed it when he printed it. Thank you for pointing out that he was playing left handed! I never learned to play and didn't notice.

Mr and Mrs Fisk were neighbors when my mother was a little girl. I am hoping that a family member will find the photo here. I'll write what little I know about them this weekend.
