The Cannery Girls’ Band of Sheridan, Oregon

This is the Roy Graves Canning Company Girls’ Band, from Sheridan, Oregon. Founded in January 1919, with members from the female employees and daughters of the fruit canning business, it was outfitted with new uniforms and Conn instruments, and gave its first concert in April that year. Over the next two years it performed in many towns and at various events in Portland and elsewhere in western Oregon. Its fate beyond 1921 is not known.
