I bet the Wingates Temperance Band got their interval refreshments from the Herbal shop in Scholes!
Footnote: On the reverse it says The audience can indulge in alcoholic beverages!

I hadn't realised until recently that I had a distant family relation (my mother's great grandfather) who signed the Temperance pledge in Manchester in the early 1830's - he went on to conduct many bands in and around Manchester including the Earlestown Brass band - he could play some dozen or more instruments himself, having been totally self taught.
