Italian Band, Huntsville, Ontario, c. 1914.
With Spirit and Resolve, by Susan Pryke, Fox Meadows, 2000..."By November 1914 Huntsville had yet another band. The Italian Band joined with the Citizens and Salvation Army bands to give a group of soldiers a rousing send-off to the war. Huntsville, by this time, had a thriving Italian community. C.O.Shaw of the Anglo Leather Company had recruited men from a village of Meana DeSusa in Italy. One of the immigrants, Vincenzo Grosso, was a fine cornet player, who taught the others a "few basics of music".
