: The location of this banjo has been known for many years, though for a variety of
: reasons it was kept private. In the last couple of years, though, possession of this
: S.S. Stewart has passed to Tom Guard, Dave's son. This picture with Josh Reynolds
: holding his grandfather's banjo and Janet and Greg Deering is more than a year old
: and was taken in TG's Massachusetts home, which Josh was visiting. Tom re-posted it
: today for Father's Day.
OK--this photo is "too cool, Mon". So now all we need to do is have Tom, Josh, Greg and Janet visit 221-223 Church St in downtown, (Colonial-old city) Philadelphia and take a photo of where this historic banjo was probably built. This is the site of the original SS Stewart and Sons banjo-makers and it is a stone's throw from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. And if it's not too much trouble, can Carl and I be in the picture??.....Thanks much, Joe P
