Football Coronation 1953
||2nd June 1953
|A288 & D244
Top: 2nd June 1953 Football hung with flags and bunting to celebrate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth 11.
Eight men stand across the street holding a banner which spells "Football".
It had been /was raining, many street parties had to be moved indoors to any suitable venue.
This was the occasion when the majority of the population watched a National event on television for the first time, in black and white of course.
Sets were bought specially for the Coronation, most owners were generous and invited neighbours in to view the proceedings.
