Dunmore Carnival 1959
This is a particularly interesting poster from 1959, just around the
time when orchestras were becoming showbands. Note that seven of the
eight bands are described as orchestras while only one, 'J.J. Flynn
and his Show Band, featuring Dixieland, Calypso and Skiffle Groups'
have dropped the 'orchestra' tag. They were soon to be known as the
Johnny Flynn Showband.
