Happy Halloween!

RiedtI don’t have any trombone history entries or images on Halloween, per se, but this depiction of a carnival procession from 1589 includes a trombone and involves some fairly elaborate costumes. The image, by artist Nicolas von Riedt, is titled Fastnachtszug and originates from Basel, Switzerland (Salmen, Musikleben im 16 80-81).
