I would like to know who did the drawing (enclosed) from 1918 of Land Girls dancing to a gramophone in the Great Hall of Hatfield House?

thanks,

It looks like they are dancing in a Tudor banqueting hall (perhaps used as dormitory accommodation) and in the corner the ghost of a Tudor lady (Good Queen Bess?) is being drawn into dancing too in sympathy.

NB.  I guess that Hatfield House must be from that era.

What a wonderful drawing David, have you had it long ? I used to live in Hatfield and visited Hatfield house many times, Ursula Wood has brought a quirky contemporary feel to an old world maginificent space.

All I have is the jpg.  Of course, Elizabeth spent much time at Hatfield (before the Great Hall assumed its current form) and she loved to dance (especially the volta).

Ursula Woods was a delightful artist who created delightful scenes.
