The Camano Island Cornet Band was one of the popular local bands that played community events. Judging by the style of photo and other details, they played around 1910.
These bandsmen pictured in this special photographic postcard are Lester Nelson, Arthur Einarsen, Harold Knutsen, Oscar Bodine, Ernest Einarsen, Sophus Borreson, Levi Thompson, Olaf Knutsen, Carl Land, Pete Wold and T.W. Magelssen. They are perhaps not unlike the current South End String Band scheduled to play Feb 7th at the Floyd.
Not much is known about them, so if you have information about them, please let us know! The names were listed in the “Stanwood Story” by Alice Essex, v. 2 p. 100
