The shops seen in the background are on the south side of Sholebroke Mount and include, from left to right, William C. Speight, Grocer at number 47, Ernest Johnson, fried fish dealer at number 49 (with the crosses on the windows) and Edwin Crow, confectioners at number 51. Part of the Scott Hall Hotel is visible at the top, left. The children, many wearing party hats, appear to be holding paper bags which are likely to contain their party tea. They are also armed with mugs. These are local families from the surrounding streets and the smiling little girl in the print dress in the centre of the front row is Joyce Burrow who lived at number 3 Scott Hall Grove.
