Purchase a reproduction of this item on


A musical group identified simply as German Band posed in costumes by the shore at Fortune's Rocks in Biddeford. The sign next to the band read: "KEEP OUT - The Members Only - When With Ladies".

None of the musicians were identified, but it could be concluded they were part of the entertainment at some event or party held in the neighborhood.
