This albumen image dates from the 1870’s and shows what looks to be a family reunion or community gathering with a brass band off to one side. The group is posed on a large porch of a house. Looking over the folks in the photo you can discern young and old as well as children. Some men are wearing derby’s or non-descript slouch hats while a few older gents wear top hats. The woman wear a selection of light and dark colored dresses some with lace collars. The children are gathered in front on the right of the photo and almost right at center is a white dog lying at a man’s feet.

Of particular interest is the brass band posed behind the children. The band appears to consist of 8 musicians. All but two appear to be holding brass horn instruments. All the band members wear dark suits with “conductor” style hats.

The image has good contrast and condition and also comes framed and matted. With the mat the image is 5 x 7 inches in size. The mat is typical of the period with a white body, gold border and a gold outline. The frame is also typical but in nice shape. It meas. approx. 11.00 inches wide x 13 inches long x 1.75 inches deep. The wood has average wear and is in overall good condition. Reverse still has the original wood slats which are held in place by points and one strip of tape.
