Description: Streetsville Brass Band, with Robert Graydon in the centre. According to an article by the late Mary Manning, ┐Brazen Sounds of Long Ago┐, there were several iterations of the Streetsville Brass Band. In 1855 it was organized by Tatham Tunstall and equipped with instruments from the first brass band formed in 1849. The band included William Jones, Robert Graydon (cornet), James Leslie (tenor), James Simm (baritone), Tom Marshall (orphacleide ┐ a keyed brass instrument similar to the tuba), Henry Schooley (trombone) Mr. Butchart (snare drum), John Graydon and William Glendinning. Mary Manning reports that this band broke up in 1874 and a new one was formed which disbanded in the seventies. Another band was formed in 1883. The photo is from a slide presentation made by Graydon Clipperton to the Streetsville Historical Society at the Streetsville Public Library in 1972 and donated to the library in 1973. Description as of July 2015.
