Arthur Delemont

Arthur Delamont
April 1976 — Arthur Delamont was a legend in Vancouver because of his Kitsilano Boys Band which won over two hundred awards between 1928 and 1974. He was also a legend because of his fearsome temper aroused by missed notes although I think this more myth than real. The band ceased performing in 1974 but there were still rehersals and this young boy is receiving a trumpet from Delamont after band practice in the basement of General Gordon School. From his body language he knows about and believes in the legend.
