A View of the Past – August 17, 2016

Shiloh Band 1913 RESIZED

In days gone by, small community bands in this area were very common.  This week’s view is of the Shiloh Concert Band which, as the date on their drum notes, hearkens back to 1913.  Unfortunately, the names on the back of the photo are mostly illegible.  But, perhaps, the band members will be familiar to some.
