Lynne Massey's photo, published on Facebook today shows the Bull Ring in the years before World War as what appears to be a May Day procession passes through. It's certainly later than 1900 and before 1920 when the former Fitton's/Vernon's butcher's shop was built where the white cottage, top middle right is in this view. This particular photo is sometimes confused with ones showing the Relief of Mafeking in 1900, and there are many similarities. However, the 1900 celebrations saw the shops in the area decorated with many patriotic flags and bunting which are absent in this photo.
