Young musicians kitted out in their smart costumes posed for this photograph in the 1930s.

The picture was bought in to the Mercury office by Cromford resident Eric Fern.

It shows the Matlockians Carnival Band. Organiser of the band was Bill Young and the picture was taken by Stathams Studios in Dale Road.

Let us know if you were a member of the band.
