It added, “The photo features a lineup with younger versions of some well-known Calypsonians who were members of Kitchener’s Revue Tent. At the time, the tent was located at the National Union of Government and Federated Workers (NUGFW) Hall, Frederick Street. The calypsonians were there to do a rehearsal. Also featured in the photo are the Grandmaster himself, Lord Kitchener and musician Fitz Coleman who was to perform at the tent for the ’72 Carnival season.”
