Sepia Saturday has suggested cane chairs – or should I say wicker furniture – as a possible theme for this week. Here is Amelia Tansey in 1931 nursing one of her four grandchildren while seated in a cane chair at the side of her house in Camp St, Beechworth .
So while wifie was at home cooking, cleaning, washing, sewing etc, etc, what was hubby Bandmaster Tom doing? If not at work he might have been at the State School training their brass band.
He would have been using his favourite teaching methods. My cousin Larraine gave me a copy of his hand-written notes in his lovely cursive script This is the first page of three.
At other times he might have been rehearsing the Town Brass Band. or putting the band through their marching practice, this time in 1934
