Smethwick Street Party 1953

Richard Overy shares a wonderful old photo with us of a street party to celebrate the Queen’s Coronation in 1953. The photo was taken in Smethwick and shows a whole host of interesting faces and clothes, allowing us a glimpse into the past.

Working in local gov, managing a frontline service for families. I love Shropshire, love family and love information and blog about all three. There is also the occasional mention of cake and caek.
