Isn't that an 'S' on his chest (jacket) ?

Brilliant. Thank you for all the restores. They make him look much better.

All I can think of him is that he's in a band. My family from Hunslet weren't well to do and all were basic labourers and there's very few photos of any of them other than ones after the 1940s and this, to me, looks to be quite a bit before that. Or am I wrong? Does anyone have a date for it at all?

Do you remember if there was anything written on the back or  if it was a postcard style?

(Nice one, Pat  :) )

The York Industrial School Boys Band has very similar braiding on the sleeves when enlarged:

I was wondering if it possibly be a colliery brass band. Many of the collieries had them. Some of my ancestors moved to that area for work in the mines from the north of Wales in the 19th century
