1883 Fancy Dress A cabinet portrait of a group of young people wearing 18th century costume, photographed by A. E. Slater of 24 St Georges Road, Brighton. Although they could be mistaken as a troupe of actors and actresses, this group were probably on their way to a fancy dress ball or historical pageant. The photographer Albert Edward Slater ( born 1863, Brighton ) began his working life as a hairdresser's assistant, but he set himself up as a "Photographic Artist" at 24 St Georges Road.
