Several new Iconography images added:

2 images near the bottom of American ID'd - an interesting homemade HG with provenance, thanks to Shirley Eaton Louis.
A very cool cabinet card at the bottom of Euro ID.
A postcard to Euro UnID.
A great lyre mando player in Related...(outbid on eBay - neither seller nor buyer would respond with a decent image)

I'm surprised that no one chewed me out for all the missing photos on all the Iconography pages over the last few/several months.  I had inadvertently uploaded all my page updates without meaning to, so had not done the photos.  I took a moment to do so.  There are about 50 new images scattered throughout all these pages.  Many are new and spectacular surprises - some I have shown in my presentations at the last 2 Gatherings.  Yes - I'm way behind.  There is much more to format and post, including a good hundred instruments and several dozen new makers...just clone me!

I apologize for not individually thanking the many generous contributors.  Some may be mentioned in captions, and file names provide others.  So everyone please be very grateful!

I feel grateful and slighted at the same time! 

Hey, check out the guy to the right of the harp in the "La Harmonia Orchestra Yet another player of the unusual Washburn lyre guitar." (Identified American Brands)
 
Doesn't he look a lot like Lester Payne? Payne's groups had one of those funky HGs.. Several other inlay blocked instruments in that one as well... Harwoods? Can't tell at this resolution, but are any of the other players in the Payne/Knutsen photo?

BTW, there are a few nice Mozzani HG pix in the new Gino Bordin CD.

Darrell - you're right of course, and I'm an idiot.  As I've said, this stuff has been piling up so fast, I hardly have time to look at it myself!  I forget where that image comes from, but will get right on it, and it'll be part of the Payne story in the Knutsen Archives.
Speaking of which....is late for an update I know.  Too much stuff there as well, isn't that right, Darrell?!

Thanks for the tip on the CD - I'm on it!

Now I feel guilt and shame...

Hey, I think ALL of those players are in the Knutsen photo. The only guy I can't quite make out is the guitarist next to the violin player.. And I'm even more convinced the woman next to Payne (in both photos) is his wife.
