Young people attending the Co-Operative Union Summer School stand around the piano, being played by a music teacher, (probably Mr Dawn of St George's Co-Educational School in Harpenden), and sing. They have an 'official' music group and choir at the school, with hours of practice, but the teacher also plays the piano for a more general evening sing-song. The original caption states that English, Scottish and Welsh songs were all very popular and sometimes a group of Welsh girls would sing in their own language to the rest of the group.
