Famous Ladies' Pipe Band
I found this postcard in an antique shop in Regina, and I asked P-M Don McDonald and Donna Findlater
about this, and they identified it as Nellie Small's band from the 1930s. The Saskatoon Public Library also has a copy of this postcard, and their web site says that the band sold these card for 15ยข each to raise money for trips. The band did a lot of travelling to the USA and other places.
