The Morning or Evening Dance, Helston Flora Day, taken around 1919. The couples are dancing in a lane between an enclosed garden wall and a lower hedge. The gentlemen are wearing mostly boaters or flat caps, jackets and ties. Interestingly, one gentleman is wearing a daffodil button hole rather than Lily of the Valley. Two men in uniform can also be seen, one being a sailor. The ladies are wearing hats and dresses just above the ankle. Part of The Jack Stephens Collection of local photographs.
