25th Anniversary Dinner: 1944

This celebration dinner was held exactly 25 years after the Birmingham Municipal Bank commenced on September 1st 1919. The small number of attendees presumably reflects the fact that the date of the anniversary fell during the Second World War. The two gentlemen on the nearest table, wearing spectacles, are Charles Harper (left) and Norman Ling (right). Charles Harper entertained the guests by playing the piano (probably located on the dais on the right) with Marian Smith (sitting on his left) singing.
