Kew Green, Richmond, at the end of the August Bank Holiday celebrations, 1926. William Dallimore, Keeper of the Museums of Economic Botany, Kew Gardens, described a Bank Holiday in the 1890's, writing that the visitors enjoyed themselves "seriously enough as long as they were within the Gardens, but... as the Gardens were cleared, they remained on Kew Green for two or three hours and a large kiss-in-the-ring was formed to which all comers were welcome, and the fun became fast and furious." Stalls on the Green sold cockles, cakes, tea and lemonade, and fortunes were told for a penny a time.
