History / Biographical
John Gray conducted many bands between 1911 and the 1930s. He eventually built and owned Gray's Jewellery on Main Street in Smithers. His wife's name was Janet and he had five children: Alex, Mary, Ethel, Mary and Florence. Gray 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 [Mr. Abel] 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 every son of a gun in Smithers was down there." Identifications from other sources: The four men at the centre front are (l-r) Alex Gray (drummer, x on shirt), Fred Fowler (with tuba), Clarence 'Clary' Goodacre (in white shirt), John 'Pop' Gray (in dark suit). Ernie Hann is to the left of Alex Gray holding a tuba or euphonium and wearing a cap. John Maxwell 'Max' Collison is standing behind him, also wearing a cap and holding a tuba/euphonium. Graham Collison is the boy to his left, seated immediately to the left of the man dressed in black with the black hat on. Others on the left-hand side of the group include Alfred Banford (Barfred?), Fred Cook, and Bert Kenney. Those in the back row include Percy Berg, Mr. Woodward, and Bill Grant. In the right-hand side of the front row are: Don (Donald Wallace) Collison (fifth from the right, slouched over and holding a trumpet), Reg (Reginald John) Collison (third from the right; just to the left of the moving small boy), George Bowie (second from right) and Mr. Doodson (far right). Negative copy also available.

History / Biographical
John was the son of Omineca Herald owner Louis DeVoin. The second man, previously identified as 'Wilmer Bannister' in this record, is most likely Wilmer Lewis, whose sister Irma married Al Bannister.
Notes
The aircraft appears to be the 'Alexandria Eaglerock,' owned by Yukon Airways and Exploration. The pilot was John M. Patterson who was delivering the plane to Whitehorse form Denver, CO. Patterson spent time at many small towns on the trip doing barnstorming as a method of raising money to buy gas for the flight. (See Interior News, November 7th 1928.) A duplicate copy (P0414) identifies the men as Jim and Bill Newton, but this is most likely incorrect due to the provenance of this photo (Bannister family) and an inaccurate date given for P0414 (1958). Negative copy also available.
