About This Image

In this postcard we see a band performing a concert in serenade formation in front of the bank on Victor's Main Street Serenades were often impromptu concerts in which the band would favor a local individual or business with two or three songs. In the case of businesses, this was often by way of thanks for financial support. Note the foursome taking in the concert from their car seats on the left-hand side of the crowd. The high profile, open top vehicles of the day were provided excellent seating for enjoying a concert.

Here is a view of Victor's Main Street from the opposite end that dates from about about the same time.
