A Peace Day Decorated Cart

There is no title on the picture side and no publisher clues on the address side. At some time someone has written the word Watford in pencil.

This float is clearly dressed up for an event and the "bride" at the front of the cart is labelled Peace. The flags displayed include the Union Jack, the Stars and Stripes, the Italian flag and one which is almost certainly the French flag. It seems very likely that this is a Peace Day float, for the celebrations on 19th July, 1919.

If the post card is at Watford it might be possible to identify the float from press coverage of Peace Day in the Watford Observer.

In the meantime can you help identify it -and any of the people on the float?
