Don't forget also that cornets of that age were roughly equivalent to
today's--but in general trumpets were much smaller in both bore and sound.

Yes, and some of these players switched back and forth between the cornet
and trumpet. Sometimes, players informally used the terms cornet and
trumpet almost interchangably. Non-musicians often can't tell the
difference between the two instruments. Like many other musicians,
Armstrong began on the cornet in part because that was the instrument that
was available to him. The cornet was the preferred instrument of the
military bands and street bands of that era, so it existed in greater
numbers than the trumpet.
