There is another collection of old band photos that may be of interest  
to some (or all) - they are more often brass bands (military or  
civilian) but there is a lot of variety here. I posted a link to this  
site many yeas ago, but they recently moved.

Go to http://www.ibew.co.uk/  and then click on "Vintage Brass Band  
Pictures" - plenty to explore!
