[Man and Young Girls Playing Cypress Trumpets]

Description: Photograph of Dr. Horace Allison, a pediatrician from Carthage, and four young girls playing cypress trumpets at the Texas Folklife Festival. He stands behind the children, playing a three foot long cypress trumpet which he is holding up in the air. Four young girls are standing in front of him, each playing a cypress trumpet that is so long, the end of it is out of the image. The photo is close enough to see that the girls are dressed in costumes. Each girl is wearing a colorful patterned shirt and a small, black, decorative cap. Allison is also wearing a colorful patterned shirt. To the right of the girls, a woman is standing and holding the hand of a toddler. The group is playing on the grass with the Institute of Texan Cultures visible in the background.
