More W. R. Myers Marching Band Pictures

I went through old pictures today and found these pictures of the marching band, or of me in the marching band uniform. These are from either 1967 or 1968, in Taber, Alberta, Canada.

The above shows the band marching south, along 50th street, with the United Church of Canada in the background.

Marching towards the east, probably on the main street.

On the front steps of our farm house, which was located about 7 and a half miles north of Taber, along Highway 36. The house is still standing, and has changed owners a few times since our family moved out.

A portrait in the living room of the farm house.

These are digital scans of color prints, which have been cropped, but not retouched.

Blast from the past

Here is an old photograph. The original was taken using a chemical color process, around 1968.

Then, a color photocopy of that photograph was made in Lethbridge, around 2000.

Finally, the color photocopy was scanned today on an HP scanner.

What you see is the tail end of the W. R. Myers marching band, probably taken on parade day, around May 24, 1968.

The reason that I scanned it was to upload it to the facebook group "I was in W.R. Myers Band!"

However, it appears that one has to be a group "admin" in order to post photos. So, here it is.

While we're at it, here is one of me, in the same uniform, but without the beret. As you can see, I used to have a full head of hair!
