Vintage glossy 10 x 8 photo of Ben Pollack and his Orchestra, signed in fountain pen by Harry Goodman, Benny Goodman, and Pollack, who writes, "This was taken in 1927, one year before I got my big band by adding more men like Moore & McPartland." All members of the band are labeled in an unknown hand. In very good condition, with three heavy vertical folds, a few other creases, and small tack holes and paper loss to corners.
