A black and white image of a visiting school's marching band posing for a picture on the Bethune-Cookman University campus. The band is wearing matching marching band uniforms, including hats that have, "Miami, Fla" embroidered on them, indicating that the band is not Bethune-Cookman's. The band members are all carrying their instruments. The band's directors and chaperones are posed on either side of the group. The women are wearing dresses and the men are wearing suits. They are standing on stairs in front of a brick exterior of an unidentified building. Taped to the front of the image is the note, "One of the early marching bands at Bethune-Cookman College." The photographer of the image is unknown.
