A postcard of a Hyde May Queen Procession.
Any information of when and where is appreciated.
Today the May Queen is a girl who must ride or walk at the front of a parade for May Day celebrations. She wears a white gown to symbolise purity and usually a tiara or crown. Her duty is to begin the May Day celebrations. She is generally crowned by flowers and makes a speech
before the dancing begins. Certain age groups dance round a Maypole celebrating youth and the spring time.
