A Long Time Running

>This program announcing the 50th anniversary celebration of the American Band was printed 120 years ago (the year 2007 marks the American Band’s 170th anniversary). I found this in a fascinating “blank” book (yes, they sold them back then for the same reasons we buy them today) containing hand-written rosters of band members, minutes of meetings, playbills, and an occasional article clipped from a newspaper about the Band’s performances. Like the little record in my previous post, this book is part of the Reeves collection, and is a superb artifact of American music & cultural history.
