Historical information

The Ladies Harbour Light Guild was formed between 1905 and 1906. A popular activity hosted by the LHLG were picnics for annual Celebrations such as the festive season. There are a number of small similar photographs which suggest this outing may have been one of the first picnics held in 1905 at Brighton. Other popular spots were the Zoo and large gardens or the river up near Kew.


Possibly this image was taken at the inaugural picnic in 1905 which was the first occasion hosted by the formal association of the LHLG.
