Throwback Thursday: Squaw Mound Band

It’s another #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

This 6″x9″ black and white photograph shows the thirty-nine members of the Squaw Mound Band. The band includes both male and female members of all ages. It was organized in the rural Squaw Mound area east of Crawford in 1927 and played at the Nebraska State Fair in Lincoln in 1936.

This image from 1929 is published by Crawford Public Library and is owned by the Crawford Historical Society and Museum. Together, they digitized a number of images of the Crawford area from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. The collection features resident portraits, local businesses, and postcards.

Check out the Nebraska Memories archive to see all the materials featured in this collection.
