Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y304Q/6/1/10/21

Scope and Contents

180 x 160 mm. The caption continues: 'These magnificent headdresses seen at a native dance are made from turkey feathers mounted on beautiful beadwork foundations. Notice the way in which the performers whiten their faces by the use of fine cerial flour.' A further handwritten caption partially obscured by the above identifies this occasion as H.H. the Sultans Silver Jubilee.
