Eydon ladies look through clothes brought for sale on the used clothes rail at a fete on the south lawn of Eydon Hall.

A similar rail in this position can be seen at the back of the photo of the opening of a fete in KL170, so this might be the same fete, in which case, this might be 1963. Do the fashions look right?

Looking on from the left is Lady Ford, wife of Sir Edward Ford who opened the fete. Is the lady holding up the dress Beryl Isham, seen in KL180?
