Hillsboro Band (Women's), 1902


Hillsboro Band (Women's), 1902


A group of women and one man pose in a studio. Two are seated in front, six sit in chairs, and another six stand in back with a man. All but two hold brass instruments: tubas, trumpets, baritones, etc. A bass drum sits to the left and a snare drum to the right of the two women in front of the group. All the women wear white, high-necked, long sleeved shirts with puffed sleeves and front pleats, tucked into dark, full-length skirts, and either a bow or a long tie. Their hair is up, some drawn back from a center part, others in a full pompadour style. The man pictured in the middle of the back row wears a dark suit with a rigid collar and a tie, and has a well-groomed mustache. Oval photo pasted on dark heavy cardstock. On the bottom of the image in black ink is written 'Pope S. Bennett, Hillsboro, OR, 1902' with a flourishing underscore. 'Pope S. Bennett, Hillsboro, Or' is also printed in white on the lower right corner of the mat.
