Temperance march in Brighton?

The caption for this picture says simply G.V. Mission Procession. I have a feeling that it might be connected to St Paul’s Church.

Why are the children carrying digging tools? The posh gent second from the right is of particular interest. He does not have a dog collar but could he be the vicar/leader?

If anyone has any ideas or information which would help identify the place or occasion, please will you leave a comment below.

  • It looks very much like St Luke’s road.
