WMTHP… Were you a Hastings Trad Jazz fan in the 50s/60s? You may recognise some of these people on their way to play on the Pier. They were from the Hastings Traditional Jazz Club I believe? Hastings 1959
Mike Waghorne… Bit early for Min
Monica Bane… The Dolphin jazz band
Tony Court-holmes… my mum god rest her followed the jazz bands round Hastings
Caroline Moor… what a fantastic photograph……
Mike Vawdrey… With four clarinets and three trumpets/cornets visible plus the headgear I would guess this to a New Orleans style marching band perhaps made up from members of several different aggregations. Just a theory..
