The History of Larkin, from the Desk of Sharon Osgood
Larkin and the Sound of Music
Within the last year the Larkin Gallery has been the fortunate recipient of two antique radios that had been Larkin Co. premiums.  The donor, Joe Pawell, lives in Pennsylvania and is a collector of antique radios. When he came across Jerry Puma’s name on the internet, where Jerry’s status as a Larkin collector is noted, this wonderful gentleman felt compelled to share. More about the radios later, but they got me thinking about Larkin involvement with music generally.
The Larkins, Their Nephew, and Art: An Update
We would like to share with you this photo of a rarely seen Carlock painting as provided by Robert Rust. We truly appreciate Mr. Rust providing us the photo of one of only two known remaining Carlock paintings, and apologize for not including the photo in the original article from June.
