EDITORS COMMENTS
In this heartwarming photo print, we see the joyous atmosphere of the Children's Christmas Party organized by Mrs. Madge Clarke at the Park Lane Hotel in aid of Dockland Settlements. Over two hundred children gathered to celebrate the festive season with smiles on their faces and excitement in their eyes. Captured on December 16th, 1947, this particular moment showcases a special occasion for two young friends. Peta Carolyn Stocker, adorned in an adorable party dress and ankle socks, celebrates her sixth birthday today. With anticipation building up, she pulls a cracker alongside Hugh Sawyer from Crawley Downs, Sussex - also six years old and dressed smartly in his kilt. The scene is filled with goodwill as children participate in various customs and traditions associated with Christmas. Festive decorations adorn the venue while greetings are exchanged among friends new and old. The spirit of giving is evident as novelties like crackers bring laughter to all. This photograph serves as a beautiful reminder of how communities come together during the holiday season to commemorate and observe seasonal traditions that create lasting memories for children. It captures not only a moment frozen in time but also reflects upon the kindness shown by Mrs. Madge Clarke who organized this memorable event for these deserving youngsters.
