United Chinese Musical Association's Dance Orchestra : group photograph

This shows a group photograph of the members of the United Chinese Musical Association's Dance Orchestra. The musicians, dressed in formal attire are onstage posing with their musical instruments. The stage backdrop depicting a landscape scene with a bridge-like structure can be partially seen in the background. A caption above the photograph on the picture mount reads: "United Chinese Musical Association's Dance Orchestra that took part in the Charity Dance organised by the Association at the Great World Cabaret on Sunday, 9th December, 1934 (Presented by the United Chinese Musical Association.)"

W. Kay, Mr. Seah Keng Siew, Mr. Koh Tiong Tat, Mr. Lim Hwie Seng. Standing:- Mr. Wee Boon Liew." A decorative border embossed on the picture mount frames the photograph. The logo for the photography studio, "Nakajima & Coy Singapore" is printed on the bottom right corner. Title devised by Library staff.
