Historic Hood River
Knights of Pythias Band
Here’s a nice 1931 image of the Knights of Pythias band. Now that we have the entire Alva Day collection scanned and tagged with dates, I can quickly cross reference this image with several others taken the same day. The band was playing at a racetrack, maybe in Salem or Portland. Day didn’t spend too much time there, because two weeks later he was hunting in eastern Oregon, where he met a porcupine.
I suspect Alva Day would have been right at home with Facebook. With 2500 images, we have a remarkable chronology of his travels.
