Missionary Exhibition in the Council Chambers of the City Hall with a wide view of the displays. A hand embroidered Albanian wedding coat, or Piripiri, dating from the late 1800s can be seen in the the centre of the photograph. These coats were worn on special occasions by members of the Turkish community living in Albania. The wedding coat was donated to the Royal Cornwall Museum by Mrs C.H.T. Hawkins after the exhibition finished. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan
