The girls of Bishop’s Stortford

Today’s post is continuing on my posts about Edwardian postcards and Victorian photographs which didn’t make it into my new local history book, Bishop’s Stortford Through Time.  I have published this photograph before on my blog and on Twitter, but so far have had no success in identifying it.  So I’m going to try once again to see if anyone can identify these young ladies.  Someone has suggested to me that it is probably from the inter-war period – possibly the 1920s – because of the dropped waists on the girls’ dresses.

Do you have any idea who these young ladies of Bishop’s Stortford were? The photographers were H & A Gurton who were active in the town from the First World War and on into the 1920s.
