Violet Austin in Slough - between the 1910's and the 1920's
from Untitled: Mrs. Violet Austin memoir, page 25:
Occasionally there would be an organ grinder, churning music out of his tinny old organ, with a little monkey, dressed in a suit and hat, collecting the money. He would be moved on by a policeman, and take his stand in another part of the High Street. There was always something exciting to see when we went shopping with Mother.
