The lady selling this photo and the next said they came from an estate sale. Apparently the woman who had passed away traveled the Caribbean extensively in the 1950's. Fortunately she took a few photos on her travels.
As an Invader pattern player I love this photo. From the same estate sale mentioned above, I would definitely love to know who this is.
A photo from 1974 of Earl Harewood playing a tenor pan. Haven't been able to find out anything about him. I did learn a good deal about the Earl Of Harewood.
The back side of the Harewood photo. Not sure if it was autographed or if it was just labeled. At least I have a name.
I was initially confused by the labeling on this photo from the 1980's because the name Leroy Williams has been scratched out. I later discovered Leroy changed his name to Ali Muhammad later in life. He passed away on November 12th, 2012.

A recent acquisition, Andy Narell with hair.
Invaders post card postmarked 1969.
Another Ebay find, Andy in a 1995 Windham Hill press photo.
DO NOT let these guys tune your pan! Early photo of the Narell's with the Steel Bandits.
Classic shot of The Oval Boys, Ellie's oldest photo of the birth of pan.
Shot of old pan around the neck I found on Tony Guppy's website.
Anthony Williams and his Spiderweb tenor pattern.
One of the first VA Beach Panorama's. Not necessarily historical yet, but there's a couple of historical pan figures in there. Left to right- Andy Narrel, Anthony Hailey, Ellie Mannette, Rob Davis, Billy Sheeder and me.
From the 2014 VA Beach Panorama, Sherwin Thwaites, Me, Ray Holman, Kyle Dunleavy, and Dave Beery.
Had to get Cliff Alexis in on the action.
Over half of Victor Provost's audience had gathered around for this impromptu photo op. Sorry Vic, you sounded amazing.
