May Day Festival 1919 Staplefield

Seen here is country dancing at the May Day festival on Staplefield Common. It’s difficult to name the dance but the two girls on the left look despondent and the two on the right seem indignant!
The photograph is not dated but the house under construction in 1920 shown in the document attached to picture #1091 is not shown, and thus it must date back to 1919, being the first year of the May Day celebrations.
