Agnes Cowper in New Brighton, Merseyside - in the middle of the 1880's, in the afternoon
from A backward glance on Merseyside, pages 43-46:
The outstanding event of each summer was the annual trip to New Brighton [where…] we revelled and frolicked in the waters of the Mersey.
[Later in the day] we would all assemble at Taker’s tea-rooms upon the old promenade […] During the meal a pianist would arrive and render a selection of popular tunes for which he would collect a few coppers from each table and then disappear into an adjoining tea-room to repeat the performance.
