This photo shows the St Gregory’s church choir, clearly at a time when the choir was flourishing. Written on the back it says 1923/5. Impossible to say where it was taken. Edward Sore is 3rd from the right in the front row. We have heard that the choir members were paid 2/- , presumably to sing at weddings, and on one occasion walked out after they had heard that the boys at All saints were paid 2/6d! However, we cannot be sure that it was this group who withdrew their labour!
