    Hi, the Blackwater Brass and Reed Band shown at Mt Hawke shows my Great Grandad Thomas Harvey Rogers, who was the conductor (mentioned in description). He is at the front on the left with his clarinet. He moved to Lanner to work at Tresavean Mine around 1907/08 when the mine reopened, which may have contributed to the band disbanding in 1907. He was a blacksmith by trade, and moved to Mt Hawke in 1901 from Crowan when he married. All his sons were accomplished musicians. I have the same original photo in my possession handed down to me.
