Jelly Roll Morton
Street shot taken in Harlem, New York, c. 1935
This photograph was first published in the August 1941 issue of Metronome magazine, page 10, column 4, together with a short obituary.  The picture in Metronome shows slightly more of Jelly, but less of the background.
Shown in Oh, Mister Jelly (1999) edited by William Russell, pages 188 and 447 (both trimmed to an oval shape). Not shown in Mr. Jelly Lord (1980) by Laurie Wright.
