Although the location of this photograph is unknown, 'The Beach Concert Party' performed at Great Yarmouth in 1894. Their playbills advertised 'a unique performance of songs, amusements, minstrels, magic and performing dogs!'.

The photograph was taken with the Kodak camera - a simple, leather-covered wooden box designed for amateur use, which produced circular snapshots two and a half inches in diameter. The camera was sold pre-loaded with film, when the whole film had been exposed the camera was sent back to Kodak who developed it, returning the prints and the reloaded camera.
