This photograph is courtesy of Rudolf Mueller. Shown with the zither is Rudy's father, also Rudolph Mueller, seated with an unknown musician with a lap slide guitar. The photo was taken in Munich, circa 1923, shortly before he immigrated to the US. Rudolph settled in Milwaukee and was a long time member of the Milwaukee Zither Club "Alpenklaenge." Thank you Rudy for sharing this!
