Street Party, August 1925

The only information I have about this photograph is written on the back, ‘Ethel Hall, August 1925’. Ethel is the young girl dressed as a flapper next to the lady with the parasol. Her sister Beatrice is seated second from the left and looks to be dressed as Wee Willie Winkie. This was probably taken in Metcalfe Street/Bolsover Road where they lived although why the street party I have no idea. Someone recently suggested to celebrate the railway centenary…
