Taken: 1933 probably, Ref: M2156

Unknown church fete, same event as M2155. Decorated car with group including some Croxalls. Lucy Croxall front left, tall, with specs, light dress, and necklace. Possibly Eva behind her, dark hat, dress with bow. Notice on M2155 says ‘Summer fete, Vicarage Garden, Wednesday July 12th’, which is the right day to be 1933.

SourceWebb, David. 87 Station Road, Manningtree, Essex. CO11 1ED The photos formerly belonged to Lucy Croxall and her sisters. A relative of theirs from the Midlands (perhaps a brother) asked David, who was driving him in a taxi, to dispose of them about the 1980s, perhaps when the sisters moved to a home or when one died.
