Catalogue Note

We went to Lytham for our Afternoon Walk...because the weather was rather rough at Blackpool, so we walked along the Green We saw Willie and Annie Murgatroyd flying kites, so George wanted one. We took our friends with us. Miss Carter (who wore Pink) and Mrs Maitland and Dear Emily. Mr Taylor (the Bank Manager) had followed us and as soon as he saw Dear Emily he took her hands and they looked at each other. Mrs Maitland Dear Emilys mother became very flustered and said she felt ill and insisted Emily went with her to sit down. So Mr Taylor offered his arm to Miss Carter, but she walked away in a dreadful huff. "Oh dear," said Aunt Mary "Im afraid there'll be trouble' and the year was 1908.
