Little Brother Montgomery Photograph Frank Driggs Collection 
If you have been following me, you maybe have seen other images a collection had from the famous RCA man, Frank Driggs. 
"Frank Driggs (January 29, 1930 – September 20, 2011)[1] was an American record producer for Columbia Records and a jazz historian and author, known as well for his collection of over 100,000 pieces of jazz music memorabilia including photographs"
This image is not marked by Frank Driggs but other images had labels on the back from the "Archives of Frank Driggs". The photos have been mounted to cardboard and are hinged with tape at the top holding the cover and the onion paper that covers and protects the image. 

Little Brother Montgomery, Eurreal Wilford "Little Brother" Montgomery (April 18, 1906 – September 6, 1985) was self taught musician, able to play blues, jazz and other styles on piano and other instruments. He is primarily known as a jazz piano player but clearly he was able to play other instruments, here he plays a steel guitar. This instrument was used by blues men, notably the great Son House and also Bukka White. 
In the photo, Montgomery is in his later years, it is said that…"settling in Chicago in 1942. There, as in Mississippi, he became a respected figure, dividing his time between performing with bands and as a solo blues artist. He was a key participant in the city's traditional jazz scene as well as a standard-bearer of blues piano."
