Today’s photo is from Bob Hines, of Bellefonte.

Hines shared this photo, which had this written on the back:

“The Brooks-Doll American Legion Post #33 Drum and Bugle Corps in front of the Centre County Courthouse at Bellefonte (1928). Having originated in 1927, this Bellefonte World War I veterans musical unit was one of the finest and snappiest of its kind in the state, winning many honors during its existence.

“Following World War II, the name Ebeling was added to Brooks-Doll thus the Bellefonte Legion has been known as the Brooks-Doll-Ebeling Post.

“Picture was presented by Dan Hines, past commander of the Brooks-Doll-Ebeling post.”
