                                        The Redlands Band in 1897 -- Franklin F. Pierce (leader)      
"The band was organized in July, 1887, by R. J. Water.  Pierce (center, back row) arrived in the fall and was soon chosen leader, a position he held until 1898.  At the Southern California band contest in Redondo, August 22, 1895, Redlands won first prize."
