    Believe it or not, I actually broke down and went to Google: “Over-the-shoulder horns, also known as “back’ard blasters,” were invented and patented by Alan Dodworth in 1838. They were designed primarily for military use. When a band marched at the head of a column of soldiers, the backward facing bells made it easier for the music to be heard.” Despite the entrancing view your picture presents to my mind’s eye, my understanding is bands did not go into action, but played to entertain the troops during what down time they had.

    Speaking of getting off-topic, Sol, several Civil War era brass instruments have the bell facing behind the player, see Robb Stewart dot com for over the shoulder instruments. Lots of fun for the Civil War buff. There even used to be a modern band of them, though those guys have probably retired.
