Benny Goodman Quartet in Malmö, Sweden

Description: Photograph the Benny Goodman Quartet in Malmö, Sweden, performing for a large crowd, with Dick Hyman on piano, Charles Short on bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums. The U.S. flag behind them has 48 stars, confirming a date before 1959, and 2 Scandinavian flags (Swedish, though the color is ambiguous in black and white) hang on either side of it, for further evidence of time and place. A sign above the stage refers to Skomakaregatan, in Malmö, and another refers to Hemmets Veckotidning, a magazine published in Malmö.
