"This photo is of the workplace marching team at the Levy Factory. The factory workers made their marching team uniforms. I don't know where the team performed or competed. The photo is taken on the Carillon at Wellington, and I think is from the early 1930s. My grandmother, Edna Cameron, is third from right. She was very proud of the uniform and being part of the workplace team."
– Photo sent in by listener, Dinah Vincent
