Could it be them?

At the Biddenham Show we didn’t find names for the eight ladies in old fashioned costume in the photograph in our display taken on Monday, 11 July 1932. But some excellent sleuthing since the Show by a member of the Biddenham history team has revealed two possibles and one probable. On the front row the two ladies holding the horse’s bridle could be Miss Tanqueray-Willaume on the far left and next to her, Mrs Lilley (the ladies who organised the refreshments for the event that day, the grand opening of the then newly restored dovecote by the village pond), and next to her, in the middle of the row, is probably Marjory Burton, who lived in Church End. If you can add more information about these three or the other five ladies, please get in touch.
