I have found a 35mm slide in a skip!
I would like to send the slide to the side for their archive but as yet can't identify them. I believe the shot was taken in Dorset in the early 80s, but sides travel!
Kit:- Cotswold,
shirt - white, trousers - white, bowler hat with white band + 1 white flower & 1 red, crossed leather straps over shirt with horse brass mid chest. One appears to be wearing a "hobby elephant" yes, you read that correctly.
One has a tankard, shit, that is not a lot of help!
With your help I can get this to them.
Happy New Year to you all.
Skipy

Tim: If my memory serves me right it was Bourne River dancing in the "Midsummer at Christchurch " film. It was that picture I imagined as soon as I saw this thread anyway.

Hi Andy - it was Bourne River and Twynham Morris dancing in the parade at the beginning of the film - I even appear briefly. That was a long time ago now!!
The teams dancing in the Castle Gardens are Men of Wight and Winchester.

Somewhere in my family records I have photos of the Bournemouth EFDSS branch Morris side dancing c. 1940s / 50s
One day they'll surface and I'll give copies to CSH. The originals go on down the generations, still dancing.

Dear All,

Follow up to Chris Mason's post:

It's NOT Bourne River, although we can see why some might have thought it was.

Their kit's quite distinctive, and not so unlike our own (which is why we were given the picture) but we don't know who they are/were nor where they were. The slide's dated August 1978.

You can see the slide at unknown morris side
- black bowlers with white ribbons - on a high res scan it looks as if they all have a small bunch of cherries or simlar on the hat brims. Leather baldricks & horse brasses, but can't make out anything more detailed.

We'd be grateful for any other suggestions as to who it may be, so that we can pass the slide on.

Any ideas, or for a higher resolution copy of slide, you can contact me on Bagman

cheers
Geoff Knapman

I don't know what it is about the way they are striding, but it looks as if they might be wearing clogs. If that helps.

That animal to the right looks pretty distinctive (Pig, perhaps?) The Ring used to have a section devoted to fools and animals, but I no longer know anyone connected with it.

They seem to be wheeling some kind of cart, but it doesn't look like a rushcart.

I don't think they are wearing clogs - they are quite clearly a Cotswold tradition side.

It looks as if the chap on the right of the picture (with an L plate on his bowler!) is wheeling the 'animal' along, perhaps on a bike?

There's a fairly distinctive block of flats in the background - well, I've not seen any like that before, with a flat roof, too.
