What a beautiful photo. The young girls look absolutely lovely.

I agree. They look lovely and I love those bonnets. I'm not sure if the little girl standing nearest to the long white ribbon is my cousin.

It is a lovely photo and everywhere looks so clean and fresh. The fashion of dresses then were so much nicer than now. Probably made by local seamstresses, run up on Singer sewing machines..

Looks like a real team effort, even down to the posies.

I like how they're set ready, waiting for the order to move off.
