BILLY BISHOP
B/w unsigned photo by Handy & Boesser of bandleader Billy Bishop on stage with his orchestra and dancing with a woman at the Meadowbrook
Photo unsigned. B/w, 10x7¾ overall, 9½x7½ image, one surface. Photo by Handy & Boesser of Newark, New Jersey with photo credit stamp on verso in black ink. Black ink notations at top left corner in unknown hand: "Billy Bishop At The Meadowbrook". Bishop is shown with his band and dancing on stage with a woman in a packed house. Bishop organized his own swing band in Toronto, Canada in 1931 after playing piano in the Bissett-McLean Orchestra. His band, Billy Bishop and His Music from Mayfair, played in Great Britain from 1933 to 1939, marrying his vocalist Alice Mann in 1937, before traveling back to the United States and basing his band out of Chicago. Big bands were dying out in the 1950s, so he hung up his bandleader's baton in 1953 and became a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch in Beverly Hills, California. Lightly toned, cracked, creased and bowed. Lower left corner is rounded and worn. Otherwise in fine condition.
