I have available a vintage photo of Tommy Bohn and the Penn Sirens Orchestra.
I would like to provide you with two images (Photos) for posting before the photos
become long lost to passing of time.

Thanks!

Orchestra World, April 1929, p.08:

ARCADIA'S ASTORIA

Tommy Bohn and his Penn Sirens are at present the stellar attraction at New York's famous Arcadia Ballroom. Mr. Bohn directed his Sirens last summer and the band also toured New York State and Pennsylvania. Three vocal soloists enhance the value of the organization. Ralph Hackett, manager of G. F. Johnson Pavillon, Johnson City, N. Y., was so impressed with the work of Tommy and his Sirens that he is ready to use Bohn and his Penn Sirens at any time in the future. The personnel: Tommy Bohn, reeds-director; Conrad Hebert, Gabriel Pugliano, Ray Jones, reeds; Johnny Matzer, Earle Isom, trumpets; Hufford Allen, trombone; Frank McGuire, drums; Tommy Edwards, banjo; Gerald Holdrege, tuba; Hal Gibbons, piano.
