All the dresses were made from the same material, but with variations of the same ribbon. I'm on the left Glenis Cherry is on the right.
I'm not sure of anyone else's name. Also the same day outside the gable end of my home in Linney Street. The gable end was on isabella Street with buntings stretched across a Union Jack flying in the direction of Deakins 'chippy', corner of Caunce Street and Isabella Street. Linney Street is just behind me. My front door was round the corner.
