Music Hall Act Or What?

The Archive has been requested to undertake some research of an images for the Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum; it is displayed above! The image is part of the extensive collection of photographs which the Mining Museum holds, but the Museum is unsure of the relevance or reason for inclusion in their collection. It is believed to be two brothers who were part of a music hall act popular on Northern music hall stages; but the Archive would welcome any information to support or disprove this theory. Please help us!!!

Lots of discussion about this photo, not only do we not know who it is but what is the regalia he is wearing? Put us out of our misery and please tell.

Julie Riddiough tells us: ”Could be the ”Buffs” my great great grandad and his sons were founding members of the Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes Provincial Grand Lodge, the Skelton Lodge were called ”Old Royal George” we have one of his medals/badges”.

Image supplied by Reg Wilson and many thanks to Julie for that update.
