here are carl chinns thoughts...he is none the wiser than we are at the min

It's a cracking photo, Lyn, and I've studied it in detail looking for clues but can find none - other than the shop on the left is C Lee.
Checking my 1908 Kelly's Directory there was a Charlotte Lee newsagent at 100 Dymoke Street and so I thought this might be the annual St Alban's Church Easter parade in Highgate.
However, the location of this shop doesn't match with that of Charlotte Lee in Dymoke Street so I'm stumped.
best wishes

Carl

There is a relatively new Facebook group I have come across called " Unidentified photos of the British Isles Group " I have joined and am going to put that photo on to see if there are any other suggestions

Mikejee - As you now know I am a member of this group & it is on that group already. Nobody has a clue. I do have new information which will be posted shortly. But thanks for your interest in this intriguing image.
