Photo of a local outing on a coach about 40 men women and children of all ages and it looks like the mid 1950's. I don't know more than it was a local outing and my dad Jeff Mossop (who used to live Cape Street) is in the first row bottom left in a dark suit and I think his best frined (George? hall) is directly behind him.     Jacqueline Jensen formerly Pillar

CORONATION DAY 1953 IN CAPE STREET   09/10/07

Photographs of the Coronation Day fancy dress parade Cape Street and the party in the Co-op hut Dudley Rd. I can recognise a few faces but have no names, I was just 6 at the time. I've got more if you want them but they all very simular.
Strange to look back at the birth of the Elizabethan Age which held such hope after the years of war, rebuilding and rationing.                 6 Photos with thanks to Stevan Ryall
