I remember a very important date in Thames Street the date was 2nd June 1953 Queen Elizabeth`s Coronation most children were off school for the event , tables were lined up nearly from one end of the street to the other buns jelly and ice cream fizzy drinks and party hats after the feast you were given a tin pencil case with the Queen and Philip on them rubbers markers small rule and a Coronation hankerchief , then the tables were cleared and races were organised three leg race 50 yards dash egg and spoon and so on , people of all faiths came and joined in they celebrated every bit as much as the protestants who were the majority then no one give it a second thought and thats the way it should be  .

Lone Ranger,
 I resided in St James's but I had an Uncle & Aunt plus my mate lived in Thames Street. As I said, he emigrated to Aus with his wife and children around 1982 or so. The little girl in the picture was his eldest daughter.
Both he & his wife sadly died in 2010 less than 5 months apart. R.I.P. both of them.
