West Creek Cornet Band

A correspondent sent me this photo of the drum of the West Creek Cornet Band – from Ocean County, New Jersey. Nothing is known about its history other than it was acquired in an estate sale in the 1970’s. Charles Gibbons may have been the drummer or the band leader. A quick look online has not unearthed any further information about the band or Gibbons. The drum itself will probably be finding its way to a local museum or historical society in NJ.
