Sandusky High School Band of 1935
Photographer Ernst Niebergall took this picture of the Sandusky High School Band on April 25, 1935 on the steps of the former Sandusky High School, later Adams Junior High. The band had recently purchased new uniforms for the band members, made by the Ward Company of New London, Ohio. A few days after this picture was taken, the band gave a concert at the annual Scout Circus, held at Jackson Junior High. In May the Sandusky High School band was asked to give a concert at the Bellevue Cherry Festival. The May 29, 1935 issue of the Sandusky Star Journal reported that the band had been invited aboard one of the steamers of the Ashley and Dustin Line on opening day, June 10, 1935, when the steamer was scheduled to take an excursion trip to Detroit. Both the Sandusky High School and Shelby High School bands were asked to give concerts throughout the excursion. Several of the members of the 1935 SHS band were still in the organization when the band played at the dedication of Strobel Field (now Strobel Field at Cedar Point Stadium) on September 25, 1936.
