Preparing for an outing. A party of ladies pose outside the 'Earl of Ellesmere' public house in the late 1920s. Horace Ernest Knott is listed as publican of the 'Earl of Ellesmere' 19 Chisenhale Road Bow from 1928. He had moved to another local pub by 1934. Everyone is wearing a corsage, why? Note, there are only two men in this party. One is a musician, the other is, possibly, the charabanc driver.
