Beside The Seaside

These six ladies, flanked by two gentlemen, appear to be having a great time as they stroll down the promenade around 1910. Dressed in their finery, perhaps they had just taken in a show.  Although, judging from what appears to be a camera tripod on the shoulder of one of the gentlemen, they may have been about to model for a photograph, or maybe they were starring in a show themselves?
