Thanks, Pete. More coronation memorabila here.

Lovely memories of past times in Harringay and in a different UK.

i was six years old at the time living in Hermitage Road and my most important memory of the Coronation was that it was the first time I saw television!  We did not have a TV ourselves but were invited to a friends house for this special occasion.

Very memorable day - with lots of jelly, cakes and lemonade!

That is a "lovely slice" of Harringay history Pete.   Such simpler times then reflected in choice of sandwich fillings, all staple offerings of the era.  And the simple amateur looking printed programme.   I was just 4 years old at the time and all I seem to remember is we had a big trailer lorry halfway up our Harringay Road where folk assembled in fancy dress.  My Sister was draped in black and white crepe paper representing Queen Victoria.  We did have a photo but unfortunately it was taken by my Sister on her emigration to Australia, Boxing Day, 1966.  But I'm sure it looked like a professional photo so maybe, somewhere in newspaper archives it may exist ??

And how poignant is that line on programme front :   "Long May She Reign"
