The Girls on the Plain

This photo of five young ladies and only one man is captioned as ‘The Group on Salisbury Plain. It comes from the recently acquired album which dates from around 1929.

The girls (and one boy) on the Plain with three identified by Pat Hale.

We never really expected to precisely find the location, particularly as this is not the sharpest photo in the album. The photo is on a page with others which are in Market Lavington so it seemed likely to be very local.

We didn’t expect to name any of the people either. But recently our curator took the album for Pat Hale to see and the instant response was, ‘Well that one’s my mum’. It turned out that Pat was able to name three of the ladies and they are:

On the left is Betty Pike. She married Harry Hobbs and that pair are Pat’s parents.

Next to Betty is her sister, Lily Pike.

On the right hand end it is Alice Gale.

Well done and many thanks to Pat.
