Beecham, Thomas. (1879–1961) & London Philharmonic Orchestra
A remarkable original presentation photograph in original photographer's folder/mount, stamped "Swaine, 146 New Bond St.W. and at Southsea," photograph measuring an impressive 16.5 x 6.3 inches (42 x 16 cm.). The photograph shows the entire orchestra -all men - assembled in a large dining hall, in their most elegant attire, seated at 6 long tables. Sir Thomas may be see standing along the far right wall, with his eyes closed. We do not know on which occasion this image was taken, but it may include additional musical luminaries, as there seem to be more than a single orchestra's worth of attendees.
