This is a young cornet player from Oswaldtwistle, photographed in the 1870’s or 1880’s by R. Longton. It is not known which band he played with, but there are a few local possibilities that were active around that time (in rough date order):

Church and Oswaldtwistle Model [Subscription] Band
Foxhill Bank Subscription Brass Band
Oswaldtwistle Subscription Brass Band
3rd Lancashire Artillery Volunteers Band (Oswaldtwistle)
