Photo History

I dont actually have the photograph in my possession. It belongs to my Great Aunt. She sent the picture to me so that I may scan it into my files. She said all it was doing was collecting dust. The reason she wanted it back is it is the only photograph she has of her grandfather.

The man in the center's name is Silas Morley Boyer. He was a life long Musician. His passion was teaching others to play instruments. The family story says that he mastered every instrument played in a standard marching band . The picture is of Him and the band that he conducted in Grand Junction Colorado, around the turn of the century (1900). I know that My aunt would be honored to have it included in the Archives. I dont know who the women are in the band though.

Ladies Columbine Band
Grand Junction, Col.
