JAY'S OF LONDON  LTD. TRAJE DE NOCHE 1908

Evening dress, Jays Ltd. circa Satin with silk panels, embroidered with silver gilt strip, pearls, and diamantes. A beautiful example.

When this photo was taken, The Carpenters’ Arms in Cheshire St was the most notorious pub in London – owned by the gangster twins, Reggie and Ronnie Kray who bought it in 1967 for their mother Violet.

The Krays manor-they bought this pub for their mum, Violet and lived 100 yds away. They had the counter made up of coffin lids - so the story goes.
