Broadwas Court

A great photograph of Broadwas Court, it appears to be young ladies (some with babies and children) having afternoon cream teas. Maybe the court did this to make extra money. My grandparents at the Post Office in Knightwick used to do cream teas for visitors and my sister Josephine has told me that she had to help out too when she was younger. It would have definately be an added bonus for people in those days.
