    Farewelling the dance band






This wonderful image comes from the Tom Lennon Photographic collection and was taken in 1934. Thomas Trembath Lennon (1908-1992) was born in Sydney. He was a commercial and portrait photographer, operating his studio at 64 Victoria Road, Drummoyne, NSW during the 1930s and 1940s. He was also the official photographer for the industry magazine ‘Dance Band News ‘. This quarter plate negative was in a box with others that featured dance band musicians including Eric Sheldon.
