Hungry Band Stops at Restaurant


Dean Henn brought in this picture postcard of a band banquet held at the Van Cleve Cafe in Elgin many, many years ago. Members were seated around the table in their band uniforms, their instruments and hats set to the side. On the wall is a calendar from Montor Mills turned to June. Anyone with additional information about the band or the restaurant should contact The Elgin Review. Readers are encouraged to submit old photographs to the newspaper for publication.
