Mount Carmel Band, Carbondale, PA

The original of this rare and wonderful photograph is in the collection of Dean Cerra, Greenfield Township, PA. The band is shown here in front of the building, still standing, at the corner of Hospital Street and Apple Avenue. The bar that was owned and operated by Luigi Cerra is seen at the far right of the photograph. Luigi Cerra, who is very probably one of the musicians shown here, was one of the constituent members of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Carbondale. He was the great grandfather of Father Louis Pascoe (Fordham University, New York City), Joseph Pascoe (Carbondale) and Ronald Pascoe (Carbondale), the three sons of Santo A. Pascoe and his wife Rose M. Cerra, of 36 Hospital Street. Please contact the Historical Society if you can identify any of the persons shown in the above photograph or if you can tell us more about the Mount Carmel Band.
