Church Institute Celebration
Date 1920s
Location Rawdon
Photo ID
I073 Image donated by Val Ryan
The donor of this photo Val Ryan tells us the purpose of the celebration is unknown. She comments " It was obviously quite an important event as they are wearing flowers and the table is beautifully laid with all the best silver.
The lady on the far left has also got a large bouquet.
Note the way the ladies are nearly all wearing aprons (pinnies) to  protect their Sunday best dresses"

Think my gran Clara Louisa Long (later Braithwaite) was in the back row 4th from right but sadly too much light from the window has blurred her lovely face. She was the landlady of the Nags Head Rawdon Town Street later tenant farm of Grange Farm
