Zitherist Chris Deutsch

Here's one for the Zitherists in the Milwaukee area. In this photo from the 1920s, Chris Deutsch is shown with his zither. Chris performed Sunday evenings on WTMJ’s “Deutsche Stunde.” As I understand it the marks were made by the newspaper in order to provide contrast and framing for publication. The newspaper copy of this image appeared in the July 31, 1927 issue of The Milwaukee Journal
