I have a different picture of this band that I found in an antique shop. I did not buy it but I took a picture of it on my camera. If you would like a copy, please e-mail me and send me an e-mail address where I can send it.

Name of one of the boys in the picture

The name of the boy second to the right of the conductor and holding the baratone horn is Donald Richard Sewell. He is my father. He was there from 1914 to 1922. I have many original pictures of activities at the orphanage including a large picture of the printing press room an machinery. My father had a accident in the print shop and as a result, lost his left arm. I also have many letters written by him to his sister telling of his life there. Respectfully submitted, Arnold Sewell

Thank you for posting the info you have on this photograph I have a copy of this photo in our family bible but have no idea why it is there. I was hoping to some day find the names of the individuals in the phot but at least I now have a range of dates. Thanks again. Incidentally our family sur name at the time was probably Huggens.
