Elizabeth II Coronation 1953
Not a photo of my ancestors today. This is one taken at a street party for the Queen's Coronation in 1953. This was a party held in Birch Avenue in Romiley where my grandparents Samuel and Sarah Cox lived.
On the front row are my cousin Valerie and I posing with spoons of jelly in our mouths and the little tot to the right of me, kneeling on the chair, is my brother Brian.
No other family members on the photo and most of the children were grandchildren of the people living in the street. Most of my grandparents neighbours were quite elderly.
