Have your say

SOmething very important is clearly happening in this mystery picture which was handed to the Mercury.

It shows a horse and carriage being pulled through a street – and judging by the number of people out to watch, it must be someone of great importance.

It is not possible to pinpoint the exact time in history, and like the picture above, there are no motor vehicles in shot. However, the majority of the facing the carriage are wearing cloche-style hats, suggesting it may have been the 1920s, when they were the fashion.
