The Sandown 5 rediscovered

Santon Downham once had it's own jazz band "The Sandown 5". Sue Hartga's dad Cyril used to play sax in the band which performed at events in the village hall.

The photo is from 1949/50 when the concept of a "blacked out" minstrel band was perfectly acceptable.

A larger version of this and other photos at events in that period can be found in the Forestry Events gallery.
