Found in Cinque Ports Street

These Two photographs, along with another two, were found in Cinque Ports Street on Saturday 18 August. The top one seems to show a tableaux from a Rye Bonfire Night procession but I cannot identify anyone in it. The bottom picture is a different story, it is packed with Rye personalities attending a Bonfire Society Annual Dinner at the George Hotel. Ron Reynolds is in Mayoral Chains so it must have been around 1962. Others include Tom Upton, Alfred Horner, Bill Carey, Bobby Edwards, Les Bourne, Doris Carey and others whom I recognise but cannot put a name to. It may be that they were intended for the magazine and were dropped before they were delivered.
