i'd just received a reply to this by dalko - thanks very much, my friend!
he thinks that the man in question might be huddie ledbetter, judging by the fact that it's a coloured artist playing a 12-string guitar. that's quite an interesting offer, i'd say, as this may well be the case.
there's only one thing puzzling me again: if it's actually leadbelly (who's one of the all-time greats of folk blues) - why then can't this very picture (him sitting down with his guitar and that door on his right side) be found ANYWHERE on the internet? at least i couldn't trace it down.
on the other hand there are not too many rather well-known 12-string axemen from that era. blind willie mctell might be another contender, but i think i can rule him out as pics of him are few and far between - and this one can't be found either.

anyway - for the moment being, dalko's solution seems to be the most obvious. so, any other suggestions, anyone . . . ?

The only thing we know it's a 12 strings guitar. To be honest, i started only with that.We will not be sure until we find the right picture.

Maybe another guy?

At least we know the direction to look for!

Jesse "The Lone Cat" Fuller!






Should be the right picture.

i didn't expect this mystery to be unravelled without doubts, but here we go. now please lift the secret: how on earth did you find out about it? (you surely didn't ask greeny, did you?!)

No, no. I did not ask Mr. Green.

To be honest, i do not know how i did. I was just looking for 12 string blues players, but without success.

From the moment i have chosen the right direction, if you look on my posts, i did it in 45 minutes. Here it was 3 a.m. when i started, and at 3,45 a.m. i posted the picture ... But, after, it was too late, and i deleted all my research.

So i cannot exactly remember the way i followed to get there, keywords etc ...

I was just lucky i believe ...

Very nice detective work, dalko! This has been a mystery that I know many of us have wondered about over the years.
