Odd poster

This looks as if it might have been a poster used in a number of locations or situations. What was it advertising? A village dance maybe?

Is that terrace Berry Row (Donside Road, Alford) on the right? - before the mansard roofs were added.

Yes I think you may be right, Ray. The road was pretty rutted by the looks of things. Bob Henderson thinks this was possibly a spoof advert and that the poster was in the form of a template to which specific details could be added.

Perhaps the text of the poster was a reference to the play
"Wanted: 1000 Spirited Young Milliners for the Gold Diggings!"
A farce in one act, by J. Stirling Coyne from 1852.
