Lloyd George clearly didn't know my grandfather

This is the picture known in my family as grandfather with Lloyd George. Since he's in the top left while the former Prime Minister is trying to get away to resume his pursuit of some young filly we may assume that their legendarily close relationship was going through one of its chillier periods. I don't suppose there's an expert on liveried servants out there who might be able to date or place this picture?

  1. happy birthday:
    based on your yorkshire roots and the badges the people are wearing in the picture. Was DLG on the hustings? if it's leeds it could be this visit in 1922 where he got the freedom of the city which would be an occasion for photography a better scran might pic out detail on the badges
