The Morning or Evening Dance, Helston Flora Day, about 1950. The dancers are making their way down Meneage Street. The men are in suits or sports jackets and the girls in short dresses. Amongst the onlookers can be seen a couple in uniform and a gentleman in military uniform is walking alongside the dancers. One of the shop signs reads 'Eastmans'. The rear of the photograph states "Percy Stephens second left" however it is unclear which person this refers to. Part of the Jack Stephens Collection of local photographs.
