Smethwick Street Party 1953
by Richard Overy
This photograph was found at Kinver Antiques Fair in Staffordshire a few months ago.
The image measures 6.5 x 4.75″ & the reverse reads Smethwick Street Party 1953.
This was the year of the Queen’s Coronation and everyone has come out to celebrate the event.
Group images like this one are my favourites as there are so many people and details to look at: the flags moving in the wind, the hats, homes and clothing.
