Festival in Saltaire Park

Sir Titus Salt and his daughters, Miss Ameila Salt and Miss Ada Salt, watch children dancing round a maypole in Saltaire Park (now known as Roberts Park) as the grand opening of the park in 1871 is re-enacted as part of this year's Saltaire Festival.

  4. That's really a delightful festival, Jenny... Nice montage.

    [You are right that water lilies can peek their necks out of the water; I was a bit rushed and opted to keep my explanation simple. I'm glad you called me on it. :-) ]
