The Sunday school children of Colchester

description below

A view of the grounds of the Castle Park in Colchester (Essex) with tents erected for the celebration of the anniversary of the Sunday school. The tents, along the left side accommodate a series of booths, each equipped to feed the children in orderly queues. Against a background of trees along the perimeter of the lawns are groups of people strolling, walking dogs, or sitting with their own picnic baskets; they are apparently of the middle or better classes (judging by their clothes) looking on their objects of charity?
