Butler University Band c1922

Can your hear the band practicing for the big game?  If you lived near the Butler University campus in the 1920s, there is a good chance that you might be listening to a rousing piece performed by these guys.  They are dressed for warm weather so they were likely getting ready to play around kickoff time.  It is very apparent that newer facilities for this group might have been in order based on the condition of the structure around them.
