[Portrait of Louis Armstrong, Carnegie Hall, New York, N.Y., ca. Apr. 1947]

 

1 negative : b&w ; 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 in.

 

Caption from Down Beat: [from article] My photo of Louis shows him just before the concert. The horn you see belongs to Bobby Hackett. Louis' had just been stolen. Satchmo' had to borrow a mute, too. All he had of his own for the concert was his mouthpiece, which he had in his pocket when the thief grabbed his case. Horn has since been recovered at a pawn shop.
