A wonderful era for fashion despite the war and rationing - the lady on the right looks the business, especially with the little animal's leg perched on her shoulder! Nice to meet you on Saturday.
Les Auld: I suspect they may be fake but you can't really go up and ask can you. Good to meet you too Ingrid. A very pleasant afternoon.
The lady on the right has the look off to a T. Great to see you Saturday!
Les Auld: She does so Mike, it was good to talk as they say.

Very well caught Les, they just pose so naturally don't they. My club Chairman went to this on the Saturday and told he just how much enjoyable photography he done, I have given him the links to your two Flickr sets.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, I still have more to post, just taking my time.
