    Full title reads: "Surrey. Come to the Fair! Mitcham Fair opened with the historic key as in Elizabethan Days."

    Mitcham, Surrey.

    A large (mock) key is handed to a civic dignitary and is paraded through the crowds gathered for the traditional Mitcham Fair. The Key can just be seen going through the crowds and past various fairground rides.
