Photographic postcard of the Helston Flora Dance by A H Hawke of Helston, 1930. The dancers are dancing in a garden with overhanging trees. The gentlemen are wearing flat caps and suits, not morning suits and top hats, so presumably this is an image of the morning or evening dance. The ladies are in knee length dresses with cloche hats. Two lady onlookers are walking alongside the dancers with their smartly dressed children. Part of the Jack Stephens Collection of local photographs.
