[Sausalito, CA]: [early 1900s]. Black and white photograph measuring 5¾” x 8” on cardboard mount measuring 8½” x 10½”. Good: mount heavily worn and foxed, photograph with patches of fading, faint horizontal crease and scattered foxing.
A photograph of the Irvington Brass Band, likely taken in Sausalito, California at the turn of the century. According to a 1904 history of Washington County, California, the band was founded in 1901 and was “in demand for parties and dances, picnics, political campaigns, etc.” We guess from this picture that the band was also available for Fourth of July parades and place the photo in Sausalito based on the signage for “Bem Bros Blacksmith and Horseshoer” which ran advertisements in the Sausalito News in 1901. On the adjacent building there is signage for the justice court as well as an insurance company whose sign is obscured by the bunting.
