I must confess I am as curious as the young lady in the background as to what I actually photographed here, I'm thinking that maybe someone in traditional dress, but the black plume of feathers around the head sort of throws me a bit.

That is odd. I think the black feathers remind me of a town criers outfit so maybe it is something to do with town criers. We had the world championship in Chester a few years ago and it was a day to see people dressing up.

I am unable to make out the lady’s face but there is more than a possibility that this is the flamboyant Newmarket artist Jacquie Jones noted for her equine art. I have often seen her around Newmarket always in different outfits and with different wigs or hair colour.

It looks like she has been shopping today in nearby Cambridge - two new pairs of shoes in the string handled bag perhaps?

A link to an amateurish You Tube video which features her and her work:

Thank you so much for that David, this is really a fine example of how Ipernity works for the community. I am pretty sure you have identified her correctly. I watched the video and in some angles I can compare some facial profiles as being the same.
