Street Band "Hard Times Make Great Music " Cigar Box Nation Poster - featuring vintage photo
This poster features a vintage photo from the early 1900's, possibly taken in New Orleans. Shane Speal discovered this old photo at an antiques dealer back in the 90's, and recently re-scanned it in to make it available to the cigar box guitar and homemade music community. The photo shows a number of street musicians, many of them kids holding homemade instruments. The photo has been tweaked just a bit to include the Cigar Box Nation logo on the sign (originally it read "We don't want to be hobos all our lives."), and given a nice printed crackled-edge effect.
Your purchase of this inexpensive poster helps support Cigar Box Nation and our research and historical preservation work, ensuring that more gems like this will be re-discovered and made available to the homemade instrument community!
Printed on 12 x 18" brown kraft paper, it would be a perfect decoration for your workshop, man cave or music room. They also make great gifts for the music lover in your life! Designed and printed in the USA!
