Civil War Period Coronet Band in front of Frame Building with Empire Style Doors and Window Shutters Photo !
Military Style Uniforms with Shoulder Scales and Plumed Shako Hats ! Shows 10 Horns, 1 Cymbal Player, 1 Base Drum, and 2 Snare drums.
Base Drum Identifies the Group as :
?OYER or (?)OVER CORNET BAND ORGANIZED OO,1(3), and 1843 or 1873 ?
I can't be certain, even with an eye loop?
The Best Identifier would be another Historical Book reference with the same building in the background.
Winter photo Shows partial snow covered Brick Sidewalk ! Found in a Lancaster,Pa. Antique Dealer's Estate Sale.
Actual Paper Photo is 5 by 7 on a photographers' 8 X 10 studio back board.
8 by 10 inch Walnut Tramp Art Stick Frame is complete But in very bad shape from moisture damage. Still has all old Original components Wavy Glass, and Dark Wood Backboard.
If anyone can positively identify this photo I would gladly update this listing with that information.
