A living flag
The Sepia Saturday post for this week has a group of women holding banners. Banners put me in mind of flags, and of this card with people forming a "living Union Jack". Then I found two more. I thought they marked the same occasion but it turns out that forming a living flag was quite popular at that time. The first marked Empire Day (now Commonwealth Day) in 1911 and the second two marked the Royal Visit to Bristol in 1912.
