Gunwalloe United Band of Hope, about 1880s to 1890s. A large group of men, women and children, dressed in their Sunday best are pictured with their Band of Hope banner. The photograph was likely to have been taken during the annual Tea Treat. During these popular annual events, participants paraded through the village in their best clothes followed by a treat of tea and saffron buns.
