Little did the people in the foreground who were looking at the cameraman know that people would be looking at them in a hundred years..these are lovely historical photos...thank you Michael.

A great photo, I can imagine those girls thinking they are royalty by being pulled by a Horse in regalia and a Footman dressed in finery stood at the back of them, they're having a good fun day and hope they raised a lot of money for local causes.
