FLORA DAY circa 1914

Twenty minutes past noon, Mr.George Beringer`s clock records the time of the Mid-Day Dance on Flora Day wending its way down Meneage Street passing the shop of Kneebone Leather Cutter (as a sign in the window announces).

Mr. Kneebone stands on his shop doorstep, perhaps anticipating a surge in the sale of his leather for footware repairs after the day`s trip over the roughened sufaces of Helston`s pavements.

The leading couple are Mr. Henry Montague ROGERS, later Sir. Montague Rogers of Nansloe and Miss TYACKE of Tenderah.

Inspector KEAST leads the procession.
