My Christmas Sepia Saturday contribution is making a guest appearance on my Picture Post Blog whilst News From Nowhere is prepared for a New Year New Look. And what better way to celebrate Christmas than with a group of family and friends putting on a 1920s pierrot show. I remember asking my father about this photograph a few years before he died and he was able to name a few of the participants although he was not able to identify a particular time or venue.I made a few penciled notes on the back of the photograph based on his recollection and I have now transferred these to the following image.
Enoch Burnett was his father (my grandfather) and Miriam was his sister. Some of the other names I half recognise from stories of his childhood. The group would have most likely been associated with a chapel or club in the Great Horton area of Bradford. Whatever the performance, I am sure that the entire cast will join with me in wishing all Sepia Saturday readers a very Happy Christmas.
