"The Robert Johnson guitar" was offered for sale in 2006 by a firm that sold autographs and other celebrity and historical ephemera. As I remember, it listed for six million dollars. I have no idea about its authenticity, or whether anyone bought it.

I love how in both photos he wants you to notice his fretting hand. Such a player.

"There was a make-your-own-photo place on Beale Street, near Hernando Street. I’ve since learned that a man named John Henry Evans owned it. The photo place was right next door to Pee Wee’s, the bar where Mr. Handy wrote his blues. One day when I was 10 or 11 years old, I walked there with Sister Carrie and Brother Robert. I remember him carrying his guitar and strumming as we went. You just walk in, drop a nickel in the slot, pull the curtain, and do it. There was no photographer. I had my picture made. Brother Robert got in the booth, and evidently made a couple."

they also unearthed some film of rojo playing the drums!!
