Pomp and Patriotism

1899-1902

About this memory

Donated by Penny Powell, of British Columbia, Canada, this image shows her great-grandfather Frank Laubach, surrounded by his band on the stage of the Music Hall at the Assembly Rooms some time between 1899 and 1902.
This patriotic assemblage includes a lady dressed as Britannia as well as children in military and naval garb - could it be a gathering to commemorate the country's role in the Boer War?
