UPC Phonograph Employees160 viewsHere's a photo from United Phonographs Corporation employees during a company picnic in Sheboygan. Notice the baseball bats they bear with them I found newspaper clippings from 1920 in the Sheboygan press that a baseball city League was incorporated in 1920 and almost every company in and around Sheboygan had its own baseball team, including the UPC. The photo is reproduced from "The Lakeside Crafts Shop", by peter Copeland. Used with permission of the Sheboygan County Historical Research Center, Sheboygan.

contact Alex if you recognize these guys!222 viewsLast year one of Moy B. Toy's children sent me several photos of the Toy Oriental Room, a restaurant in Milwaukee which in the 1920s and 1930s was the place to be. All the major dance bands played here. Moy B. Toy ran the restaurant for his father Charlie Toy. The photo with the band is unknown to me. Look at the guy behind the drums with his Hercule Poirot moustache: when were these en vogue?. Then, the third guy from the left: to me he has got an oriental look. I want to believe he is Wing Toy, of Wing Toy and his Orientals. I do not recognize any of the musicians. Anyone of you?

Telegram about Doc Roberts192 viewsHere's the telegram for Doc Roberts' first Paramount recording session in Chicago.

The recorded the next day with Marsh and Hans Krazter, brother-in-law to Otto Moeser and general magager of the NYRL branche office at 218 South Wabash Ave, Chicago.
