I know quite a few on this photo - the conductor is Frank Wood, front row 2nd in from the left is Leslie Thorp, 2nd row 1st in is Dennis Mackay, 2nd row 4th in from the right Shirley Thorp and 2nd row 2nd in from the right is her father Joe Thorp. Next to Joe holding his trombone is Henry King. On the back row 3rd in from the right is Leslie Keen. The time I reckon is about 1954-1956.
