TitleCoon-Sanders Nighthawks
DescriptionMembers of the Coon-Sanders Nighthawks band are posed with their luggage beside a train car. Sanders in his scrapbook captions the photo: "The dirty dozen beside our palatial Burlington 'Toonerville' en route for a long hard ride of two miles--from Dubuque, Iowa, to E. Dubuque, Ill. This luxurious super-train, consisting of one coach, half baggage, half day coach, would have had a day off, but for us. We were the only passengers." The band's poster can be seen on the side of the train car. Edmiston in his book identifies from left: Rex Downing, Floyd Estep, Rex Stout, Bob Pope, Joe Sanders, Pop Estep, Linder (tour manager), J. Thiell, H. Thiell and Joe Richolson.
