1897 Belmont College School of Physical Culture

Here's another piece of school ephemera.  This one is from Belmont College's School of Physical Culture and is dated May 20, 1897.  "Miss Moran" is one of the accompanists for the evening.  If I had to guess which Miss Moran I'd say it was Ida Moran.  She was the much more accomplished pianist of the family.
