I've finished cleaning up some odds and ends scanning with the Fischer/Hansen collection from Larry Fischer.
Here are a few amazing scenes and images from the Fischer collection of Manning's past I scanned - especially with the historical instrumental aspects.

George Fischer - 1981 Manning Centennial King/Queen celebration at the Five Mile House
Reenactment of the Pete Kuhl band - note Bill Ranniger on drums

I'm looking for more information and pictures on the Schelldorf families in Manning...
