A Girl and Her Sax

Found inside a generic cardboard photo folder without a photographers name, studio mark, or date. Written on the outside of the folder in pencil, "Georgina Harriet Walker 4 yrs. old." Adolphe Sax, a Belgian instrument maker invented the Saxophone in 1841, one of the few instruments named after a person. The Sax in this photo seems to be sized for a child.


  1. Oh I'm bettin' she could wail with or without the sax.

  2. I recognize this look. It says, "But I wanted to play the viooooolin."

  3. It might possibly be a soprano sax with a curved neck.
