Great photo , it looks more like George V1 and Queen Elizabeth's coronation in 1937. The present Queen's parents..on the other hand it looks more like VE Day as well - with their picture on the flag. The children's clothes look more 1940's and the fashion of the grown ups.
Thanks Veronica, that's very observant of you.
You couldn't have lined-up the two any better Graham.
Graham, the lady on the extreme left is my mother, Doris Halliwell, has who lived opposite your grandmother at number 5. That is me in her arms and I was born in June 1936. I supplied the names of every household who lived in Kingsway when you posted the original photo a few years ago.
When a street like that once housed decent working class families who were respected amongst the community. Now that street is probably now full of chavs and the dregs of society.
Certainly doesn’t look like it’s occupied by the ‘chavs and dregs of society’ to me it looks like a quite decent place to live according to the top photo. Sometimes people are too quick to judge because of the whereabouts but believe me there are far worse characters than chavs and dregs who hold some of the highest positions in government and big business.
