Date sought of Unknown Group of Children in costume by W H Duncan of Hull
« on: Thursday 21 February 19 10:06 GMT (UK) »
Hi, can anyone help with putting a potential date range to this photo?  Found amongst my aunts photos when she died, we are unable to identify anyone in the photo which was most likely taken in Hull as it has photography company W H Duncan of Anlaby Road Hull on the back.  Any ideas welcome!

Looks like 1920s and possibly Empire Day.

The two young women on the left looking at the photo (one holding a child) are Lyons Corner House 'Nippy' Waitresses.

The 'Nippy' first appeared on New Year's Day 1925.

Hull Daily Mail on lad in front row.  If it is still going they may help.

The Hull Daily Mail is still going, in tabloid rather than broadsheet format, I buy it very day  ;)

Thank you for these spots!  Just needed some of your eagle eyes to find some datable features to be able to start to work out who of my relatives may in the photo!
