I could not find any information about this group at this time.The name of the band was most likely taken from the 1923 Zane Grey novel and the silent film produced the following year.

Born Franklin Bryant Washburn (April 28, 1889 – April 30, 1963) Bryant Washburn was an American film actor. He appeared in 375 films between 1911 and 1947.
The brunette actress-wife of silent screen matinee-idol Bryant Washburn, Mabel Forrest played a couple of leading roles in programmers in the early ’20s, including three with her husband: Other Men’s Daughters, Mine to Keep, and The Love Trap (all 1923). She later worked on the stage, played bits in such films as Hollywood Boulevard (1936; again with Bryant Washburn), and appeared on such television series as The Twilight Zone and Petticoat Junction. Her son, Bryant Washburn Jr. (1915-1960), played bit parts in films of the 1930s. ~ Hans J. Wollstein.

“Research found a genealogical site that identifies the photographer as being Calvin A. Stuart (1844-1925) who was active in the Buffalo area between 1874 and sometime in the 1880′s. Stuart’s wife, Helen, also worked in the photography business.”

A wonderful blog please take a look!
One of the countless photographs of young men playing the new jazz music in the 1920s.I could not find any reference or any recordings made by The Original Santa Fe Five but There were very popular bands with names like Original Dixieland Jazz band, Original Memphis Five,Original Indiana Five,Original New Orleans Jazz Band etc etc there could have been hundreds of such bands across America.
Below are scans of labels from my 78 record collection featuring two bands who performed using the “Original” moniker. Two of the my favorite bands were the Original Memphis five and the Original Indiana Five.Both bands left us with an amazing recorded history and performed some of the finest jazz in the early to mid 1920s.And like the photograph above that has a clear New York photographers imprint at the bottom left.Many of these bands were from New York and had nothing to do with cities like Santa Fe,Memphis or Indiana.

Four 1860s era CDVs that I picked up from a local Flea market.These along with many others were from a single family grouping.I tend to gravitate towards Photographs of Women in my collecting and picked what was for me the most interesting in the lot.
