First Manville Band in Action

Manville-Band-2First Manville Band • Click Photo to Enlarge

Well if you’ve been paying attention to this blog awhile you know that awhile back, I found a great old professional photo of The First Manville Band. You can click that link to see the old post, which is complete with names. This version though is pretty amazing, because THIS photo of the Manville Band is of an earlier incarnation. I know this for 2 reasons. The first being that  they don’t have a uniform yet… and second, the band is a lot smaller in this photo. This photo was submitted by Rich Hamernik, whos grandfather Pat was actually in the band. He gave me these along with a couple of old Manville Royals baseball photos, which date back to the mid20’s, so I imagine this photo is circa the same time, and  possibly on the same day.

I’m still trying to sort out the location of this… but on a side note, the typography on that bass drum is phenomenal.
