Historical information
A widows' function, possibly a craft exhibition (some of the same ladies are in 00654 and 00656) or a time when craft items are sold at a trading table. The two ladies behind the trading table could be Vera Lang and Billie Sims. Keesing Photographers took a series of photos on the same day of various ladies.
Pg 11 could mean the photo was used in an issue of The Answer.
The date is assumed as 1992 due to the reference number from the photographic studio 920609 could mean 9 June 1992.
