Old Tyme Dancing Club in the Coronation Day parade.  oldtymedancingclub.jpg (18403 bytes)
People are, except for the young woman right of centre who might be Marion Maggs. 
The horse and trailer was lent by Weasenham Farms (?) and the photo was taken in a hanger on Feltwell aerodrome.  A dance was held in the hanger that night and the temperature was so cold that most people kept their coats on for the whole of the evening.
