Revd Francis Galpin with a musical instrument called a ‘trumpet marine’ (with a church in the background). The photo is facing page 98 in the book ‘Old English Instruments of Music’ by Revd Galpin, first published in 1910, second edition in 1911. He was vicar at Witham from 1915 to 1921. This photo would have been taken at his previous parish, Hatfield Broadoak, where he was the incumbent from 1891 to 1915.
