I received the following four photographs from Mr. M.Ellis of Kent in 2014. They were originally postcards and he very kindly reproduced them and sent me these copies. They are .
1. Coronation -Netherthong – June 22nd. 1911. Was this taken outside the Parish Church?
2. Peace Celebration – Nether Thong – July 16th. 1919. Could this have been taken at Deanhouse Workhouse.?
3. A small group of ” Indians ” – “blacked -up” and in costume. Could these be local people appearing in a play or musical.? Probably circa 1910s and could have been taken inside the Parish Church?
4. A much larger group of actors and actresses including the eleven ” blacked – up” from the above photograph. What sort of play would incorporate such a diverse range of characters?
I have also inserted the photographs in the appropriate chapters in this history.
In 2016 Judith Wobst sent me the photograph below. It shows a group of Old Folks outside the Parish Church and is marked on the back 1898. She says that Emma Wimpenny, 4th. person in 2nd. row, was her great,great grandmother.
