As seen on museum wall at last night's Snow Camp jam, don't believe have seen this Muleskinner News photo before. Any of you Monroe-o-holics know the story of this? Looks like he is holding the Loar in his left hand and is ~ mid 1940's.

Is it the Loar at one angle looks like a F7 picture not that plain and could be thinking too hard

Kind of reminds me of this Monroe Brothers picture . . . so I am going to guess early solo; 1940-ish.

Cool pic. I'm glad the riding pants thing went out of style

Drew! The jodhpurs were pretty cool, especially with the tall boots! I go that route for a stage show, why not, costumers is still fun.
