Hi Webmaister, I attach a photo of some young people who held a concert to celebrate Elizabeth II coronation in 1953 the children would have come from Lochiel St. Cubie St. Forbes St. and around.
My sister Mary Thompson is kneeling on the extreme right of the second row. it would be nice if the photo could bring back memories of those times, Regards George

Hi Webmaister, have been in seventh heaven looking at all the old sites of Brigton since my mother put me in the direction of your website.

I would like to tell George Thompson from Kidderminster, Weans 1953 celebrating the coronation in 1953. The two wee lassies in the frothy dresses at the front are my cousins Doreen and Irene Given, also residents of Locheil Street. Apparently I am in the area somewhere but was just a little bit too young to participate. Looking forward to letting my aunt and uncle see their offsprings on the net.
