John B. McClintick

This is my great-grandfather John B. "Brit" McClintick, holding the guitar in the quartet and the banjo in the trio. In the quartet, the man at right is holding a mandocello, second from right is a mandolin, and at left is either a mandolin or mandola. Mandolin groups were the rage in the late 1800s and early 1900s, later supplanted by ukuleles and banjos.
