The Pier Bandstand 1920-1922

In the early years of the 20th century collecting post cards was very popular, and very competitive. Coloured cards had extra cachet in the era before colour photography

British dance bands of the 1920s and 1930s were orchestras fronted by a band leader. They played popular, good-time tunes influenced by American jazz and big band music. But they also maintained a peculiarly British sense of rhythm and style which came from the music hall tradition. Often comedians of the day or music hall personalities would sing novelty songs backed by well-known British dance band leaders.
