Classic flat-base cymbal stands and rail-mount tom hardware.

Don't recognize those bass drum spurs, though. Never seen y-shaped ones.

Well they are not much short of 500 years old although I do have a feeling the photo might be faked. The caption is wrong too unless old Harry had another couple of weddings that the history books missed out.

Well, yeah. The kit pictured here would have been used starting in around the 1950s. Here's a bunch of kits from the 1920s-1930s, and they look super weird.

The "drum set" is about 100 years old. The foot-operated bass drum pedal was invented, I think 1908? Allowed one player to combine the bass and snare from European-style marching bands. The only "toms" were, like, a Chinese bongo with a tacked-on head. Cymbals were also china-type "lion" cymbals, and a little later, very small (under 12") of Turkish-type bronze cymbals--used only for accents--NOT a time-keeping device. The "high hat" pedal came about in the 1920s. It was a technological advanced version of this thing:

Pretty set, all clean and spiffy except where the pedal hits the base.
