A. C. Fairbanks (by Vega) Senator No. 1, 5-string banjorine, S/N 25917, Circa 1909

The need for special banjos for banjo orchestras continued until the early 20th century, and this banjorine (the Fairbanks name for what Stewart called a banjeaurine) was meant to play the violin parts in ensemble playing.
