German Street Band

This drawing was done mainly for practice purposes.

It’s basis is a photo from a book I took out of the Longmont Library:

The Radical Camera: New York’s Photo League, 1936-1951 (Jewish Museum) by Mason Klein.

Taken by Robert Disraeli in 1934.  I usually use my own pics, but I’ve been working on doing more complex compositions, and this caught my eye.  The challenge was arranging the 6 figures in space, relative to each other.

I wonder what tune they are playing?
