It shows members of the South Axholme School staff choir, believed to be sometime during the 1970s.

The photograph was taken by Isle resident Harry Snow, who has amassed a huge collection of snaps over the years.

The 90-year-old former builder and painter and decorator, of Epworth Road, Haxey, estimates he has taken more than 1000 pictures from the 1940s right up to present day.

This is the latest in a batch of photographs we are featuring from Mr Snow’s collection.

The grandfather-of-two said: “I have always enjoyed taking pictures. I got in touch after I recognised one of the people in the picture as my uncle in a previous column.

“There are pictures of everything – nature, landscapes, community events, jubilee celebrations, bank holiday gatherings.

“I have always been a keen photographer. I like getting the pictures out every now and again to have a look at them. It brings back nice memories for me. The Isle of Axholme has changed so much over the years when I look back at the pictures.”
