Mensday: Bowlers, brollies and birds

Photo by W. E. Carden

“The battle of the sexes in England, land of stiff upper lips and furled umbrellas – a land, in short, of Ladies and Gentlemen. Some are here seen at an Old Comrades Association parade in London’s Hyde Park in the merry month of May, where the keen eye – and camera – of W. E. Carden,  A.R.P.S. noticed this amusing little vignette.”

I feel an Avengers episode coming on…

    Must be the Cavalry Memorial Parade, annual event every second Sunday of May. Good show!
