FLORA DAY 1954


Thanks to Denise Oliver (nee Thomas) who wrote to the HH website to explain the details of the 1954 Flora Day Mid Day Dance photo:
“The photo was taken in May 1954 and Dad (Donald Thomas) was dancing with Mildred Bassett (the family owned the tobacconist shop in Wendron Street). The man behind them is one of the Pascoe’s from the butcher shop”.
Photo added 8th Sept 2011
Jack Rundle in Houston, Texas e-mailed today to identify the others:
“Apart from Donald Thomas and partner the other lady is Helen James, partner Keith Pascoe. Helen’s father, John James had furniture shop where J C Williams is now”.
