I think you may be right, Troyboy. I remember going to Lyons in Chatham but don`t remember any waitresses. I think only the Lyons Corner Houses had waitresses, nicknamed `nippies`. Was it somewhere near the Empire or nearby?

Hi Norwester, there used to be a Lyon's Teahouse in Chatham High Street in the 50's, whose waitresses had uniforms which were similar in style.

Hi. I wonder if any older readers could possibly place where this photograph was taken. It might have been outside a tea shop, a restaurant or even a works canteen. The lady on the right is my late mother-in-law, Emma Eaton. Not certain of the date but probably 1945/46 and it was definitely Chatham. I'd be very pleased if anybody could throw any light on the location.
