  1. As a boy from age 11 (1955) to 15 (1959) it would thrill me to listen to the brass band military music in Ropner Park. It was magnificent.

  2. I happened across some sites that list historical band contests (don’t ask), it looks like bands came from a wide area to compete. Contests were held in Stockton so this band need not be a local band. Only a much later competition (1946) was listed as taken place in Ropner Park.

    Some of the competitions have descriptions of the events, two nice Stockton examples are:

  3. Nice big emblem on the bass drum for somebody to recognise? and there might be some writing below it, though it may just be noise in the image.
