Tin Can Orchestra Makes Money (Dec, 1932)

Tin Can Orchestra Makes Money

THE tin can orchestra shown in photo on left was the invention of three New York boys who determined to beat the depression. Sixteen cans make up the orchestration. All are grouped according to the sound they emit. It is hardly exact to say they built a perfect chromatic scale but they have gone as far as possible with the materials at hand. One of the three boys plays the band while the others sing.

    Did they cut the other two out?

    And how old is the guy in the pic? A bit too old for the term ‘boy’ I think.

    At least they weren’t singing about killing cops while wearing “Don’t Snitch” sweatshirts.
