Burntisland Brass Band, taken around 1906, probably outside Burntisland School. On the right (with cap and walking stick) is the school's headmaster, James Lothian Mitchell, although it is not known what his association with the band was. Sandy McGrattan has suggested that it is likely that one of the two young cornet players at the front is George Eskdale, who became one of the most esteemed trumpet players of the twentieth century. George's father, James, was in charge of training the Burntisland band in the period the photo was taken, and it likely that he too appears in the photo.
