1912 Fancy Dress
This picture was kindly supplied by Ken Jarvis. The only person known is the boy kneeling behind the pillar second from the left.  His name is Arthur Lamb born in Pocklington on the 13th September 1903 and is the father of Ken's wife.  His Mother is Annie Lamb (nee Smith) and was also born in Pocklington in 1884.  His Father is John Atkinson Lamb who is thought to have been born in Bridlington in 1877. The people on the photo seem to be dressed up for a special occasion, I wonder what it was all in aid of ?
Please contact me if you recognise anyone, or the place the photograph was taken.
