    At the moment there's a photo for sale on eBay of Clapton Congress Hall band in 1910. What is this instrument? Contrabass? The SA Eb trom with double-acting slide? The player next to this one seems to have a conventional G trom.

    Cool - I'd never seen a picture and thought they might be legendary.
