Theatrical Productions Photograph of a musical production, with cast on stage, orchestra in front. Notes on back of photograph are as follows: This was probably a very old photograph when it was given to Miss Stocker who was the librarian during the early 1900's. There seems to be no identification. The picture was taken to Fred Mannhardt who was a well-known professional musician for well over 70 years. He was of the opinion that it could have been a production in the old Turner Opera House which was located on Iowa Avenue just across from the old high school which is being used as Central Junior High in the year of 1974. Mannhardt felt fairly certain that the conductor was Ferdinand Grade, father of Charles Grade who was a respected musician and teacher, and he suggests that the production may have been "HMS Pinafore" which was popular in that day. The picture was taken to Robert Jackson who affirmed Mannhardt's opinion. 619
