Edwardian friends inspecting a catch of fish, Pembrokeshire
A group of Edwardian friends inspecting a catch of fish in a large Pembrokeshire garden. The two men, one of whom is a vicar, are holding fishing rods. The four women look admiringly at the array of fish laid out on the grass. Six people, five fish -- but plenty for everyone!

A woman in a very chic outfit for fishing (blouse, cardigan, shorts, white shoes and crocheted beanie hat) sits with her rod beside a pile of fish. Apparently the catch is somewhat fake - all the catch was due to an overstocking on the Norfolk Broads and were caught and killed.
