Given that this year we might see some street parties to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee I thought I post a photograph from my own collection.
I have no idea what the celebration is – perhaps the Coronation in 1953; perhaps VE Day, although I think it looks later than that; or perhaps it was some local celebration.
Whatever the occasion I hope that they had a good day. Certainly some of the people in the photograph seem happy to be there but others do look a bit miserable.
I have tried to examine it closely to see if I recognise anyone. And to be honest I’m not sure. There is a lady on there with a look of my grandmother – think I need to ask my mum if she knows anything at all about the picture.
If anyone has any suggestions about the period or event please leave a comment.
