Photo Number 2018

This is a snapshot from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

Band practice Dl Antiques

Band concert/practice someplace.  Community Bands used to be a big thing, people would get together and play music sometimes to dance and sometimes they would march in parades.  My husbands Grandfather played in a community band in the early 1900’s.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Look at the size of that band - impressive!

  2. I can envision people on blankets at the opposite area sitting on blankets listening to the live music. This is way before stereos and probably tv.

  3. That photo caught my eye right away, because Community Bands are alive and kicking around here, even today. There is a big one in the city where I live, and another promising one in the town to the north of us.

  4. That's a big band! I can hear them playing patriotic music... instead of show tunes... :)
