To end the week we have yet another example of a Clarke street shot. This kind of candid photograph is much practiced and has many followers. Given the equipment Clarke had available at the time however, these are especially fine examples! That young buck sitting on the side of the pram looks like he he is being held back or he would run wild! Where was it taken and when? Perhaps La Belle Province can help identify the headgear and help with the date?
While others did help us with details of headgear (including the toddler's Fez and the ladies' Tam Caps), it was Frank_C
who provided the most coveted of inputs - on location. In short, Frank's suggestion (seconded by others) is that this is the Parade in Rhyl, North Wales
. And it is still quite recognisable today.....
