About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Sioux Falls Municipal Band

Sioux Falls Municipal Band

I've established that music was a life-long pursuit for my grandfather, from his youth in New Hampshire to his final days in North Carolina. But someplace in the middle, he and my grandmother spent a number of summers in South Dakota. This picture of the Sioux Falls Municipal Band dates from 1949 or 1950.

Here's the line-up for the band, by tier: 4) Ed Paul (standing), Gossman, Smith, Hoover, Branch, Susede (?), RIchardson. Ellis, Jackson, Friedhoff, Alger, Pruner, Marker, Niblic (?), Kittleson, Miller, Henegar. 3) Madeck, Littlehang, Barnett, Askew, Little, Anderson, Lorenson (?), Brooks, Krumrai, Ewing. 2) Larson, Pace, Colwell, Hanson, Hoyt, Weber, Richardson, Wagner, Morgan, Griffith, Lias. 1) Palmer, Tyler (my grandfather), Olsen, Foss. Tietjen (Standing at right?) Cor. not in picture. View full size.

Time for a photo

Time for a photo

Found this pic with the rest of my Grandmother's things. I don't know the person standing by the clock. The photo is probably from the 1950's. My Grandparents way back collected, repaired and sold antique clocks.
