Uncle Harold Played the Tuba

Uncle Harold “Butch” Hendricks, born in 1928, is shown here with a tuba. My father’s youngest brother, seventeen years apart.

No date on the photo – my guess is about 11 years old so approximately 1939? Illinois just heard from a music reacher friend and Pat says “I think Uncle Harold might have been 14 or 15. He is managing to hold that tuba up and they are heavy.”
