Henrietta Burkin in Charing Cross, London - November, 1925

from Memoirs of Henrietta Burkin, page 40:

We had one big party—on my twenty-first birthday; all the relatives came from Stepney and Poplar, and all sang the usual songs. There was plenty to eat and drink, and I heard Mother’s youngest Brother say to her as he carved the joint, I see you haven’t lost the “family tradition”, no shortage of food.
