Outside the Lord Raglan, (19 St Ann’s Road). Photograph by A Griffith & Son of Armagh Road, Bow about 1900.

Where is the group going to? Is it a wedding party? There are no women, but some of the men have flowers on their coats. There is a curious mixture of formal and informal and there is obviously going to be music.
