A portrait painting of a seated Thomas Healey (Jnr). Healey was a violinist who played his instrument to test the acoustics of the Royal Albert Hall at a concert on 3rd December 1870 in the presence of HM Queen Victoria, a few months before she formally opened the Hall in March 1871. Healey was brought up in Burnley, Lancashire. His last address was 108 Mortlake Road, Kew Gardens, London. He died a widower aged 90 years with four surviving children. In an obituary (unknown publication and date) it is stated that he was the son of the late Mr Thomas Healey, known as the 'father of Burnley musicians', and that he himself was a violinist of ability and a member of the old Burnley Choral Society. He was awarded the Prince Consort's Gold Medal and purse of gold in 1865 for having gained more first-class certificates in science and art subjects than any other student in the country.
