    I own pictures of Cora Green, Brick top, Florence Mills, Ethel Waters . All of whom worked with my Grand Aunt Cora Green. These pictures are different from the one or two I’ve found on line. Your picture on the left is the first I’ve seen like it. My shot is of Mills, Green, Waters and Mills.

      James, I’d like to see what you’ve got. Are you referring to the image of the Panama Trio dated 1916? It was probably more than a year ago when I collected those photos of the Florence Mills and the Panama Trio, so I don’t remember precisely where I found this one. There is a larger one available online presently at the following link, though the quality appears to be somewhat lower than the above image. — regards, Jim


      P.S. (1 May 2013) After increasing the sharpness of a copy of the larger image found a squidoo, I’ve added the result to the gallery.
