Boys Band, Training Ship Indefatigable
The Boys Band of the Training Ship Indefatigable pose for their photograph in a field, near a tent -- probably at a local fete where they were performing. Their ship was moored on the River Mersey, off New Ferry, Cheshire, established in 1865 'to receive the sons and orphans of sailors, and other poor and destitute boys, and train them for the sea.'
