Earliest Known Photograph of Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Postby WagnerRing » Tue Mar 14, 2017 3:48 pm

Here's an interesting artifact from the early years of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The earliest known photograph of the CSO was taken 125 years ago today, on March 14, 1892. Shown on the front row left is August Helleberg. See link for the photograph.

Helleberg's doing the 3/4 pose. Hats, mustaches, and topcoats must have been part of the dress code. I didn't know bowlers were that popular.
