Photographic postcard of the Helston Flora Day Children's Dance in Cross Street between the 1920s and early 1930s. The boys are holding the right hand of their partner with their right hand so that their hands are crossed in front of the girl, not like today: boys right and girls left. The girls are wearing circlets of flowers in their hair. Photograph by A H Hawke of Helston.
