Looks like Little Ralph may have given too much lip to the conductor, given the color of his eye...

Given the range of ages in the band, I assume this was a community band, not a school band. Looks to me like they are a little heavy on the brass section.

I believe the "Sava" is actually Savo- family lived on Reed rd across from the W end of Kenwood Drive. Charlie was killed in action during WW2.

And it looks like a who's who of the founding of the westside fire dept as well.

My sympathies lie with the clarinetist.... I’m sure that he was never heard.
