I’ve been posting information here, from time to time, on Bobby Edwards: a singer-songwriter who became somewhat of a local legend in Greenwich Village in the ‘teens and ‘twenties. He also made his own cigar-box ukes, which he sold at souvenir shops in the Village. I had resigned myself to the idea that none had survived.
But now, thanks to Nancy Hertel Melvin, the great-niece of Bobby Edwards, I can bring you a photo of one of those elusive ukes. Thanks, Nancy! And, as usual, you can click to enlarge.
