Maypole dancing on Batys field, now Fairview Road and Moorland Avenue. The background landscape and individual trees are still recognisable. The white posts just visible in the background mark off the cricket pitch. The right-hand in the group of three girls under the maypole is one of the Beer sisters, possibly Kathleen.
