Quite a well-fed-looking bunch of Paupers, Chris...
Chris: Agreed - they would have seemed better if starved
When you travel back in time are you not afraid of upsetting the time continuum ? This photo reminds me of when we got school dinners....
Chris: Oh crikey...school dinners

They come high on the list of things I need to forget Frank

Wonderfully shot - well-fed but they do look like they are a bit worried about something, Chris.
Chris: I seem to remember they were acting-up in the centre of Bath to advertise a forthcoming play Beth
Give them some coats, for Pete's sake!
Very good, Chris!
Chris: This was summer, that long lost season, Elizabeth..

It almost looks like time stood still and this is a wonderful picture, Chris. Let's hope that history is not repeating.....
Chris: The fact they are well fed chubby individuals betrays they are advertising a play Astrid
the social media will soon be flooded by their reactions and responses, Chris.
Chris: Yes maybe Ayush
I suppose most of them had to be "taught" how to look poor, Chris? But what a good enactment.
Chris: Thank you kindly Ginnie
Il ne doit pas faire très chaud ..
Bonne journée
Chris: This picture was taken in summer Claudine, hence the skimpy clothing

J'aime les costumes de ces pauvres gens.
Chris: Stylishly impoverished..

They look a lot better nourished than the poor down-and-outs you see in Bath today
Chris: Yes indeed Lisl. I feel concerned for the latter in this very cold week

Some don't appear to have gone hungry despite being poor. They look very unhappy, though; have their heard that your namesake (no relation) is making a visit?
Chris: Yes indeed they are, and they know he will eat them out of house and home - assuming they have one..
Then it's off to the wine Barr and mummy picks them up in the merc.
Chris: I think you've hit the nail on the head there Mick

That video is splendid Tiff, I remember watching it many years ago. Glad to see it again.
Chris: Isn't it great Chad!
They are much too clean to be authentic!
Chris: Of course they are Tom..

An interesting picture, especially with the way they are acting. But for paupers, they and their clothing are very clean.
Chris: And they are all too chubby Louis
Not a mobile phone in sight, what a change.
Chris: A very RARE sight indeed in 2018 Brian
This looks like an authentic group. Very good!.
Chris: Thank you Mary
Is this a play? It seems so real
Chris: Yes it is a play Claudio. They are too well fed and laundered to really be in poverty

They certainly don't look very happy even though they seem not to be starving.
Chris: Not at all Anne, just advertising a play
A Young Conservatives awayday

Chris: I am obliged to you Peter
