Framlingham Photograph – what is the event?

Market Hill Framlingham

As many of you know from my previous articles, I am very interested in old postcards of Suffolk not only the pictures on the front, but also the information and addresses on the back that can be linked to family research.

Recently I was at an Antiques Fair and found this old postcard of Framlingham Market Hill, which shows celebrations and many people and soldiers gathered on the Hill and I am trying to work out what the event may have been.

There is nothing on the back of the card to give a date, but I was intrigued by the fact that most of the children are dressed in white – was this significant to the event?

Also with my interest in the names on the War Memorial in the town I wondered if it was something to do with the end of World War 1.

It is interesting to see all the people looking out of the windows of the Crown Hotel and also the windows above Barclays Bank.

If anyone has any information that may help to date the photograph and confirm the event I would be pleased to hear from you.
