Back Green Spitfire Concert

Thank you to Flora Hirst (née McLeod) for allowing me to reproduce this photo.  Flora tells me that her mother organised this concert, around 1942.  The back of her mother's piano can be seen in the lower-right corner of the photo.

-  The concert was held in the back green of Rossie Place.
