Dewsbury Orchestra
1890-1910, Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, Uploaded by leesmob1 at 2018/07/23
Tags: West Yorkshire Batley Windle Samuel Hepworth Orchestra Dewsbury

Samuel Hepworth (seated 2nd from left) was married to Mary Emma Windle, sister of my 2xgreat grandmother. I believe the orchestra was formed by Samuel and based in Dewsbury, I don't know when it was taken but Samuel was born in 1850 (in Batley) and he looks to me to be in the 40 to 50 age range. Does anyone recognise the others?

What a lovely photograph. It is amazing how these Victorian men learned how to play musical instruments. Perhaps church was the instigator of training, I don't know.
