THE BOYS IN THE BAND: TWO TUBA PLAYERS IN GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA

This cabinet card features two uniformed band members and their instruments, which according to my limited musical knowledge, are tubas. Note that the instruments have the written music  attached via musical symbol clips. Hopefully, a visitor to this site can leave a comment explaining the significance of the design of the clips. The musicians are handsome men and appear very serious as they pose for their portrait. The pin on the band members cap has the letters “DCB”. The meaning of this abbreviation is unknown. The photographic studio that produced this image was W. F. Kilborn of Grand Island, Nebraska.
