Object:Two ladies and a man drinking beer in a beer garden
Description:Two ladies and a man are sitting around a small garden table in a beer garden, smiling into the camera and holding up their beer glasses. The two ladies are elegantly clothed in fashionable dark afternoon dresses and hats. The lady to the left is middle-aged and corpulent, the young lady to the right wears lipstick and two bangles around her wrist. One of them has placed her leather bag on the free wooden chair between them. Their companion is settled back in his chair, and is wearing a suit with a waistcoast and tie. They all have paper badges fixed to their chests.
Comment:The arrangement suggests a couple with their daughter. Their dress and posture indicate that they belong to the upper class.
