Jazz Musician Syncopates Jail

Sept. 7, 1919, Shoes  

Sept. 7, 1919: C.H. Baker has three shoe stores on Broadway and one on Spring Street.


African American jazz musician William H.F. Wilkins is put in jail for not being able to "give a satisfactory account of himself." What's an "onion trombone/trambone?" Beats me.
