The photo does not have any identifying marks of the people. But there is a stamp on the back from the processing service, Brown Photo Service, Minneapolis, Minn. Then, under the stamp is the date, November 19, 1942.
Yes, the photo could be straightened. But I did not want to lose the car in the background. Does anyone know the type of car? I am horrible with old car names.
The photo reminded me of my grandfather who hunted a lot. He always seemed to have a cigarette in his mouth too.
I wish I knew about the couple.
I can honestly state, I know little about the 38th Division Band. The Internet provides some information. But I cannot find a site to inform me about names or performances during the 1940’s. I will keep looking, I always do.
The back of this print reads, “This is our 38th Div. Band. 170 men and the drum major. The 37th Div. Band of 100 men is waiting on the sidelines. Picture taken before game, before much of a crowd had come.”
Written in pencil below the explanation of the photo is ” Rec’d. Jan. 7, 1942″.
The back of the photo contains a stamp, Hammond Photo Service, Meridian, MISS. with the date Dece. 30, 1941.
I am assuming a young person from the military attended the performance and game. The photograph was taken and sent back home to a loved one. If I find anymore in the box relating to this photo, I will post it.
Until next time….peace
