Search for historical information on city band continues

NORWICH – In July of 2010, Norwich City Band Business Manager Lee Wilhelm began searching for the names and history of a group of local musicians pictured, in uniform, in front of the T.S. Baker Drug Store. The problem? The T.S. Baker Drug Store no longer exists. And the photo? It was taken in 1907 and discovered by Wilhelm hanging on a wall at Fred’s Inn.



Over the past year, Wilhelm has identified only two of the band’s members, trombonist L. A. Cevasco and conductor William K. Johnson. In addition, he discovered a short article on the band – including the same photo – located on page 45 of the New York Interior Illustrated Magazine, Vol. 1, No. 2, published in 1907.
