About This Image

This postcard, postmarked 1908, shows a picture of the Leon School Band. The text on the back of the postcard is particularly interesting because it makes reference to the band and was written by A.C. Voelker, who is identified as the director of the band on the front of the post card. The text states:

Prin[cipal] E. E. Bovee, Mason City, Iowa, Central Building

Leon, Ia. 11/25/08

Dear Friend: -- How do you like the looks of our bunch? The boys play well. School is going pretty nicely. We are planning to attend the S. T. A. [State Teachers Association] at Des Moines and no doubt you will be there too. With best wishes, A. E. Voelker.
