Residents of Gainsborough get ready to go on a Coronation outing
Residents of Gainsborough get ready to go on a Coronation outing

THIS week we feature the second of two photos that were sent in by Mr Cook of Upton of families in the High Street, Cleveland Street, Frampton Terrace, Britannia Terrace and part of Sandsfield Lane area of Gainsborough as they prepared for an outing to the coast a week after the Coronation celebrations in 1953.

It’s the grown-ups that are featured here, although a young Mr Cook is pictured far right between his father and Bill Neal, two people, he says, that were guaranteed to make him behave if indeed he had been up to mischief!

If anyone can identify someone on the photo you can get in touch with the Standard office on 01427 615323 or 01427 619572.
