While we still refer to "jumping on the bandwagon", we rarely get to see a real bandwagon these days. The phrase originated when politicians learned that riding on the bandwagon was a great place to be seen at public events. In detail view 1 for this photo, we can see a father and his two children riding on the wagon, along with the band itself. It's not clear why they were invited to ride along. Canyon City was founded in 1862 as a gold-mining town, and is the county seat of Grant County. It is located about a mile south of the town of John Day. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
