Sparks of Variety

Thank you to Flora Hurst (née McLeod), Craigleith, Edinburgh for allowing me to reproduce this photograph from the mid-1930s.

Flora tells me that 'Sparks of Variety' used to perform at church halls and other locations around Edinburgh.  The only two people that Flora can name in this photo are:

-  herself,  the girl wearing the hat in the front row.

-  Harold Loughborough who played the piano, centre of back row.
