This ball was held in the Foresters' Hall. A large group of people in fancy dress are grouped in front of the stage. Elizabeth Lily Grater (née Keogh), future Mayoress of Palmerston as the wife of James Alfred Nash, is visible in the front row sitting to the left of the woman wearing the "Golden Bee Jam" hat. Many of the party-goers are wearing advertisements for local businesses, including Keeling and Hart (later Keeling and Mundy), Leopold Simmons Drapery, Harry Palmer Auctioneers and The Silver Grid (proprietor Geo.
