Ben Turner et al. in Yorkshire - between 1870 and 1879

from About Myself, 1863–1930, page 24:

Our parents were good souls, and liked us to have educative enjoyment, and several times I was lucky enough to get to high-class concerts given by notable Yorkshire singers. At the mill where my father worked they would raffle a few of the sixpenny tickets and in that way I went with him to hear Mrs. Sunderland, the Yorkshire Queen of Song, and other notables of that day.
