FLORA DAY 1924

The Early Morning Dance, 1924 in St John`s.
Notice how the ladies have their right hand across their body to hold the gentleman`s right.
This is very different to today.

“Can you find me taking the lead with J. Clifton in the morning & F. Blake in the eve. had a good time. see if you can make them all out…… Curnow at back…….
