First of all, many thanks to all those who replied about the last post. Without any doubt, the church in the photograph is All Saints, Bentley Road (demolished in 1974).
Today’s photograph is of Coronation celebrations in Pitt Street. The scene is full of animation, in particular the group of children playing house in the foreground. They have made a kitchen out of a hole in the ground and borrowed a fireguard, table and teapot. The rest is all down to imagination. Behind the girl sitting on the right is a large builder’s mallet – so I guess the impromptu house was short-lived.
Will the next Coronation be celebrated so enthusiastically? That will be interesting.
