English: Lloyd Loar and his wife Fisher Shipp in c. 1915 to 1918. Part of a brochure advertising their concert company. Loar is playing a Gibson manufactured 10-string (5 course) mando-viola, which newspapers repeatedly said he had invented. The two would be performing a few yeas later as part of the Gibsonians, doing shows for the Gibson Mandolin and Guitar Manufacturing Company. Dated from the names of the members listed in the brochure, Fisher Shipp, Carolyn Pomeroy, Myrtle Bloomquist, Lloyd Loar. Comparisons to the newspapers brought this name combination up from 1915 through 1918, an example from 1918 at this article.
