A GROUP of singers pose for a group picture, proudly presenting their trophies.

The picture shows the Matlock Prize Choir in 1922.

At the front of the picture is a plaque saying ‘Blackpool Musical Festival 1921’.

Had the men had been victorious there and been awarded one of the trophies as a prize?

The all male choir, dressed in their finest suits, including neck ties, bow ties and even the odd pocket watch, are pictured here in a leafy setting, with what looks like a church in the background, which could possibly be St Giles Church if the photograph was taken in Hall Leys Park.
