Here’s a great one from read and local history wonk, the young David Evans. David has come across some pictures of Coronation celebrations in Walsall Wood. He wonders if readers recognise any of the participants, or have any recollections of the day in question.
David had the following to say:
I wonder if readers would like to share their photos of some of the local street parties and celebrations of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in June 1953?
To start the ball rolling here are two snaps of a party in Walsall Wood. I wonder if any readers know the children, or where exactly where this parade was?
There may be colour photos, and even home movies of other events that took place. There was also the screening of the colour film of the coronation that was shown to schoolchldren, in the cinema in Brownhills.
Does anyone have details of this, and perhaps a programme?
This is a good one – thanks David for that. Comment please on this post, or BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
