Photographic postcard of the Midday Dance, Helston Flora Day, 1919. Many of the young men are in uniform and the older gentlemen are wearing top hats and morning coats. The ladies are dressed in 3/4 length dresses of the era with hats. They are dancing in a garden with an enclosed garden wall and a glass house can be seen on the other side of the wall. There are three stewards observing the proceedings, one wearing a top hat and one a straw boater. Part of the Jack Stephens Collection of local photographs.
