Can you recognise youself in this photograph? Many children and their families, not only from Elm Road but also Beech Road and Short Road, came together to celebrate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth the Second in June 1953.
I seem to remember that the event was organized by Mrs Huggins aka “Huggie”. She is squatting down on the left hand side of the photograph. I am sitting on the ground, second in on the left next to a boy. Next to me are Jeanette and Miriam Chambers, daughters of Ron the ‘Whistling Postman’. I can still remember the names of quite a number of those in the photo. My Mother and I lived in Elm Road with my Grandmother – Mrs Dawson.
