Earlier this year Foden's were successful in an application to the Heritage Lottery. One of the projects within the funding was to arrange prints from a large number of glass negatives that would be displayed within a 'Foden's Museum.' Some of the negatives are over 110 years old!

This particular image shows Foden's on the set in Cricklewood Studios during the production of a sequence for the film ‘The Small Man’. The film is a 1936 British drama directed by John Baxter staring George Carney, Minnie Rayner and Lilian Oldland.

Thanks to Ian Clowes for arranging the prints

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
