AS THE celebrations at the beginning of June to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee come ever closer, this week we look back to 1953 and Her Majesty’s Coronation.

The event attracted considerable international interest and every community in Britain joined in the fun with street parties and other organised entertainments.

Our picture this week shows householders and children from Noran Avenue who marked the occasion with an outdoor street party.

At back are, from left - Mrs Black, Mrs Walker, Mrs Carrie, Mrs Jones, Frieda Ferguson, Jenny Fyall, Helen Ferguson, Mrs Longmuir, Mrs Burnett, Mrs Grieve and Mrs Ferguson.

It has been impossible to individually name all the children, but the families represented include Black, Beattie, Bridges, Burnett, Christie, Christeson, Dorward, Eaton, Ferguson, Fyall, Ferrier, Guthrie, Jones, Mathewson, McMillan and McCormack.
