Thanks very much Jenny. I have written an email to Mark asking him about
the band and also whether he would look at the photo for me. I'll let you
know if anything comes of it.

Mary, there is the Scottish Brass Band Association
and I see they now have a Facebook page.
I corresponded with them a few years back re the Rutherglen Burgh Brass
Band c1910-30 in Lanark and also accompanied the Freemasons to many
Foundation Stone laying's and openings, maybe if you have any photos post
them and ask questions.
Apparently the photo I have has a military connection by the uniforms
being worn at the time.

Subject: [AYR] Lady Boswell's Silver or Brass Band, Auchinleck
I may have asked this before but have discovered a little about Lady
Boswell's Brass Band in Auchinleck and wonder whether anyone knows anything
What I have found is that it was active in 1879 when it took part in a
procession to inaugurate the Kilmarnock Burns Monument and Kay Park,
accompanying the Free Gardeners lodge.
My g-grandfather played in the band around that time and I have his old
battered euphonium. I also have a photo of him in an unusual uniform and
wonder if it is from the band. Would anyone be willing to look at it? I
know I can't send photos to the list.
G-Grandpa played in a band in Townfoot and I wonder whether this was part
of Lady Boswell's Band or whether it was one and the same band?
Thanks for any help,
