Lenton Recreation Ground

Empire Day 1910

Lenton Times No.23 also contains a feature on Empire Day and Lenton. This photograph and the following three were all taken on Lenton Recreation Ground on Empire Day 1910. If it were possible to obtain an aerial view of this particular shot the viewer would see that the children are all wearing coloured costumes and arranged to recreate a living representation of the Union Jack flag.
