Although the choir was established in the 1880’s, we have no pictures of it before the 75th anniversary year of 1951 [If you have such a picture, I’d like a copy, please – Webmaster]. In 1951 the choir (below) was under the direction of Honor Coldrey, with organist Peggy Layng.
Saint James’ Choir, 13 May 1951
