This takes place in a park, it could be Edworthy, Confederation or Stanley Park. The year could be 1950 or 1960. It looks like she is dancing.The music is coming from the Music Corp, it is a brass band playing on the Bow River.
It is warm out, she is wearing a short skirt. She is a little racy with that short skirt and I don't think she spent a lot of money on her bra.
Normally a scene like this is found in India at a wedding. Loud music, lots of singing and dancing.
" Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide." (Group all sings together)
The lady is beautiful, although looking at her she looks like a man, she has a man's face. Her name is Lily-Belle and she is from Canada, her last name is Javorsky, a long complicated name.She has nice legs. Lily-Belle could be between 47 and 57 but most likely between 30 or 40
Her partner is looking the other way, maybe he is in the middle of a twirl. I don't know whether she is actually dancing, maybe the floor is wet or she is stomping on a spider. She is trying to do the twist, and showing off her dance moves....Oh Lordy, it is the Twist!!
Lily-belle has learnt her steps when she was in Australia and New Zealand.
This party is for Lily-belle's engagement, she is showing off the ring on her finger. She is in the company of the one who loves her.
Lots of people are smiling in the background, everyone has an instrument and they all like the music.
It is summer..June I think, but possibly a little later in the year as she has a sweater on with a broach.....a butterfly broach.
Lily-belle needs to sit down for a rest and a cup of coffee. Her kids made up a picnic for the day at the park. She has half a dozen children, a boy and 3 girls a dog and a cat.
She is up dancing matching the beat of the drum, and dancing in a circle holding hands with as many as 20 or more people. I think she had a glass of wine with her lunch.
The people in the back row are laughing. It could be that the words to the versus of the song are made up in a funny way.
Lily-Bell is out hooting it up because her children are now teenagers and she can!
This group picture reminds me of a story every family has about an Uncle George and an Aunt Marge.
