History / Biographical
John Gray conducted many bands in the area between 1911 and the 1930's. He eventually built and owned Gray's Jewellry on Main Street in Smithers. His wife's name was Janety and he had five children, Alex, Mary, Ethel, Mary and Florence. He died in 1942.
Notes
Written on the back: "What do you think of our band. Sunday was their first performance and they were really wonderful. Fred Cook is under the tree with a x on his hat. Wanna's beau is at the back with a hat on. Ernie's partner Jim with the x above his cap. Alex Gray is in front with a x on his shirt. This was taken at Lake Kathlyn while waiting for the Seattle Alaska caravan to come from Hazelton. I think ever son of a gun in Smithers was down there." From another source: Doodson is to the far right, wearing a hat. Pop Gray is in the front in a dark suit. Clarey Goodacre is next to Pop in a white shirt. Fred Fowler is on the tuba; Alex Gray is the drummer. John Maxwell "Dad" Collison is standing in the back row, leftmost person in the back row, his head sticking up with a cap on and holding a tuba or euphonium. Right back with George Bowie (a telegraphist) playing the trumpet next to Doodson. Bill Grant worked with Doodson. Alfred Barfred's father Ralph was a dentist. Graham Collison is the boy to the left of John Maxwell "Dad" Collison seated immediately to the left of the gentleman dressed in black with the black hat on. On the right side of the picture are Reg (Reginald John) Collison, and Don (Donald Wallace) Collison. Reg Collison is seated their from their right (just to the left past a moving small boy), holding a trumpet, while a man believed to be Don Collison is seated fifth from the righ, slouched over and looking out of the picture. He also seems to be holding a trumpet.
