Opinions Sought Please ~ Ladies Group
« on: Wednesday 05 June 19 13:32 BST (UK) »
Would love to hear your opinions on what this ladies group could be please. The postcard is dated 1936 and I have included the back. There is a Reuben James Stone at Tan House in 1911 with his wife Eliza and Daughter Esther.
It's a lovely image that I would like to share if I can find out a bit more about the photo.
Thanks for looking.

Intriguing photo Carol. What strikes me is that there are so many of them.

At this stage my mind is a blank as to what the group would be though ....
