Photo of the Cookstown band in 1910 seated and standing on a lawn and gathered around a large drum with the words "Coosktown Band" painted on it. The band first practised in the Banting family barn with Joe Banting as leader in 1909. The practises were later held at the town lock-up, and eventually in Town Hall once Wes Banting took over as conductor. The band played for a number of special events including skating carnivals. The members of the 1909-10 band included: Tom Jebb, W.J. Finlay, Wes Banting, Dave Ross, Joe Banting, Alex Banting, Roy Coleman, Herb Donnell, Duncan "Dunk" Banting, Rube Glass, Garnet Leadlay, Ivan Coleman, W.P. Jebb, Lorne Arnold, Ike Pollock, Will Donnell, Wes McNaught, Frank Rankin, Jack Couse, and Roy Blackstock. The men in the photo are all dressed in similar outfits with long coats with waistcoats, bowler or derby style hats, and holding predominantly brass instruments.
