Regarding your story about the ghostly figure which appeared in the image taken by William Kay (August 15).

That was July 6, final night of the Emily opera at the nearby Hippodrome, which, telling the story of Suffragette Emily Davison, had a few similar costumes...but as far as I know none of the cast went for a canal-side walk in costume that afternoon!
