Burlington Arcade tearooms, Wellington, around 1932 (1 o 2)

In the 1920s and 1930s tearooms specialised in 'dainty' food – smaller, delicate dishes often eaten by hand. Here, the Burlington Arcade tearooms in Wellington await a rush of customers. The tables have been set with tea cups, cake stands and folded napkins.
