31st May 1942: A trip out with the phaeton from Lawford Hall

Drove over to Lawford early, and after lunch went out in the phaeton from Lawford Hall, Robin in the shafts.  I took Penelope Belfield and Parrington’s pretty cousin, Janet Hutton.  We called at Lawford Hall to see Mrs. Belfield who was there, and then went over to Holly Lodge and called on Frank Girling.  He took two photos of Robin.

This is the photo taken by Frank Girling which appears in Rudsdale's journal, showing E.J. Rudsdale, Penelope Belfield and Janet Hutton in the phaeton with Robin in the shafts outside Holly Lodge. (Courtesy of Essex Record Office)

How charming to have the photograph with the diary extract.
