Photo archive of Eddie Jay Colston (1920-60), road manager for the Lionel Hampton Orchestra before settling down to promote music acts in Columbus Ohio's Bronzeville district. Colston wrote entertainment columns for the black press in the Columbus Advocate and Ohio Sentinel, and appears in many photos with Eddie Saunders, the man credited with introducing black gospel, jazz and rock to Central Ohio with his WVKO radio shows. Includes: Lionel Hampton (2), Eddie Saunders and Colston posed with Duke Ellington's A Drum is a Woman album at presumably WVKO, crowning of Ms. Bronze Ohio (pageant winner), Eddie Chambless (possibly), Savannah Churchill signed photo marked reverse Club 845 (Bronx NYC famous Bebop Club) and Marty's 502 Club (Columbus).I have been able to identify just a few of the musicians in these photographs. There are most certainly more celebrities, musicians and by my guess either record execs, club owners or local politicians in almost every pose. (13) 8 x 10s (a few trimmed) and (7) 5 x 7s. Varies from very good to heavy creases, emulsion loss and tack holes. Please do not consider these unless you are ready for condition issues. Only a few signatures, all Columbus photographers (La France Edwards and Pierce's Studio - George). Please see photos and ask questions.
