See the Morris Tribune, 30 Dec 1896. The Morris Cadet Band was formed in 1896 under the direction of H.B. Lund. Note attached to the back of the photograph reads Lunds Band (orig. Dec., 1896 - but this picture could have been taken later) [back row, left to right:] Lawrence Thomasson, Otto Jacobson, H.B. Lund, George Flynn(?) [middle row, left to right:] James O'Malley, Arthur Flatner, Oscar Flatner, Hilfred Thomasson. [front row, left to right:] Gus Amborn(?), Ludwig Danielson, Will Haight(?), Orrin Flynn After conferring with Cora Grove, I am fairly certain these names are correct - the one marked (?) are the ones she FS not too sure of - but from the names listed in the 12/30/1896 paper, they seem to be correct[.] The paper lists two (Louie Larson and Vincent Caswell) who apparently dropped out before this picture was taken. Flo Sarlette (1971). Note that the instrumentation listed in the 1896 newspaper does not correspond to the instruments held by the players in the photograph, so the identification given above should not be taken as entirely accurate.
