Band Diary 1909 - 1975

The 'Band Diary' is a hand written record, in a ledger 8” x 13”, of every prize and engagement, winnings and concert fees secured by Foden’s Band between 1909 - 1975.

It is an unique 65 year record – a treasure trove of facts and figures in original hand writing of an almost forgotten era. 

We are not sure who started the 'diary' but is believed to have been Ted Wormald, who was Bandmaster from 1908-1913 as well as being a part time trombone player with Foden's. 

We hope you enjoy this fascinating artefact
