    Date written on negative at lower right is 5/22/24. This looks to be a charity event featuring dolls, with participation by actresses. Margaret Vale is also known as Margaret Howe and has been featured in earlier photos in the Bain stream, usually when participating in feminist parades or activities. See, for example, comments on Mrs. Howe, Mrs. Elmer Black, Mrs. Walston Brown, Mrs. Marion Burritt Mrs. B. Buchannan, Mrs. Eva Wyeth  (LOC) Const. Binney is probably the same actress as in: Constance Binney (LOC) Mrs. Whiffe may be: "Blanche Galton Whiffen, known on stage as Mrs. Thomas Whiffen, (1845–1936) was an American actress born in London. She was educated in France; made her stage début at the Royalty Theatre, London, in 1865; came to America in 1868; and toured the United States under John Templeton's management."
