Peak beauties

THis line up of young beauties were enjoying a community day in the Peak District.

All dressed in white and sporting glittering crowns the girls look like a line of carnival queens, each carrying their own bouquet of flowers and smiling proudly.

In the centre stands the most luminous young lady of them all – Miss Youlgrave, who is identifiable by her sash, which also gives the date of the picture as being in the 1930s.

Carnival queens are still crowed today, with young girls being named as ‘rosebuds’, as part of a great English tradition.

The young ladies are greatly honoured to be crowned ‘queen’.
