1894 Beautiful Bran Dresses Edge Good Lace Luck Lucky Peek Prize Games


EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, taken in the year 1894, depicts a delightful scene of three young girls engaging in a traditional English game known as 'Lucky Dip' or 'The Bran Tub.' Dressed in beautiful white lace dresses and matching hats, they eagerly lean over the edge of the tub, their curious gazes fixed on the prizes hidden beneath the thick layer of bran. The Bran Tub was a popular pastime during Victorian times, often featured at fairs and social gatherings. The game involved pouring a large tub filled with bran, oats, or wheat into the air, allowing the grains to settle, and then inviting participants to reach in and scoop out a handful in the hope of finding a hidden prize. The prizes ranged from sweets and trinkets to more substantial rewards, adding to the excitement and anticipation of the game. The girls in this photograph embody the innocence and joy of childhood, their expressions reflecting the thrill of the unknown as they reach out to touch their luck. The soft, ethereal quality of their white lace dresses and hats contrasts beautifully with the earthy, rustic backdrop of the Bran Tub, creating a charming and timeless image that transports us back to a simpler era. This photograph not only offers a glimpse into the past but also invites us to appreciate the enduring appeal of games and the sense of excitement and anticipation they bring, regardless of the passage of time.
