Jon Crispin's Notebook

play the accordion, go to jail

I spent an amazing day at the New York State Archives photographing patient records for the Willard Suitcases Project (I’ll post about that soon).  As Peg Ross, Karen Miller, and I were walking to lunch on the concours under the capitol buildings, this guy was there to help celebrate Octoberfest.  / Cristine once saw a bumper sticker that said “Play the accordion, go to jail”.  Hard to see in this small photo, but that is an A & W Root Beer on his accordion case to keep him hydrated.

    Mr Accordian has the right thighs, for sure.

    I love it! Think he must have brought a smile to many people.
