Here’s another great photo sent to me by John Tait who lived close to Charnwood Street in Grove Road. It was taken after a street party around 1946 or 1947 from the flat roof of a street shelter. John remembers that the photographer was late and the food had already been eaten by the time he arrived. That’s the photographer’s car in the background. John is the small boy in the white pullover on the front left. He was about six years of age at the time, and his mother is at the back on the extreme right, holding his brother Victor in her arms.
Does anyone recognise any of the other people in the photo – or can tell us what the occasion was? I thought it might be the wedding of Princess Elizabeth, now the Queen, and Prince Philip, but that was in November 1947 and it doesn’t seem likely as everyone is wearing summer clothes.
Many thanks John. I’ll pass on any responses.
