What Was The Occasion?

We know it is Skinninggrove Band walking by Angling Green,  the image has come to the Archive twice; Colin Hart providing a copy (on the reverse bearing the information ”Arlington Studio – W.E. Grier”); dating from the early 1960s it is believed.

Ray Brown tells the Archive: ”I cannot help with the date or reason for the parade, but I can help with a few names, leading the band is Arthur Stone (looking at him I would say the picture may have been taken in the mid 1950 to early 1960s); front row (far right) Henry Rawlins, front row (far left) Jimmy Bushby?, third row (far right) Colin Limon and back row (far left) Malcolm Voden. All those named helped both Loftus County Modern band and later; when formed the Loftus Town Band.”
