Representations of cats and dogs and their anthropomorphic appearances as brass players in various postcards and similar published material. Here I have selected a number of such “cat” cards and a much small set of “dog” ones – why the difference in popularity/availability I wonder?

Travelling musicians and entertainers had been a part of European life for centuries. In the German speaking countries of Europe during the German Empire there arose a large number of "Damen Kapellen", troupes of musical and variety entertainers consisting largely of women, usually led by a man, and occasionally including males as players. This paper (in three parts) gives an illustrated directory of some 350 such ensembles (excluding the brass instrumentalists covered in my paper "Damen und Damen"). It includes various other musical ensembles, vocalists, dancers, acrobats, and general variety acts.
