  1. Deborah Wald says

    The section with the jug handbag and gentleman with dark hair showing off other bags, is from the H Wald & Co Ltd stand. The brand name was Waldybag. My grandfather, Harry Wald, founded the company in 1915 in London. My dad, Morris Wald, later became the MD and was the designer. The man in the clip was my uncle Bernard Simmonds who was married to my father's sister Ida who also worked in the business.
