SADLY there is no date guide to this old photograph from the Rowley Ellwood Collection which shows very smart members of the Jack Guy Brass Band who were probably photographed before they played at a function.

A comment on the website says Jack Guy, known as John, was born in Kettlewell in 1853 and they believe there three members of the Guy family in the photograph.

There were a number of popular bands in the district back in the day performing at dances and gatherings.

No doubt this band will have proved popular around the district.

Obviously a very musically talented family.
