"My husband came across a photo at his parents house and is now in our possesion. The photo is in very good condition but the mounting board has some damage.  The title on the photograph is "Garnavillo Cornet Band", Turner Park, July 4, 1901.  It lists the names of the individuals in the photograph as Henry Limbach, F.J. Smith, W. Wagner, Cora Hudson, C.H. Rantzow, R.O. Schumacher, O.H. Roebken, Clara Roebken, Fred Ficker, L.H. Oelfke.  It also lists the instrument/or singing position under each name. There is the name (the photographer I am assuming)of Peick, McGregor,IA.  We don't know who this picture belonged to in our family of if any of the pictured individuals were relatives but we are quite taken with the picture all the same!"
