The complete story of the Coronation together with cut-out pieces and instructions to make up the following models;
I was born in 1948 so have only vague memories of the Coronation. I do remember my mum (or was it my sister?) telling me about several neighbours turning up to watch the ceremony on our small flickering black-and-white television set.
TV arrived in our lives only months before the Coronation and seemed to us to be an instrument of magic. It’s hard to express the grip that children’s shows like Muffin the Mule and Whirligig exerted on our imaginations. I’m quite sure I would have been staring at the screen along with everyone else on the day, but those memories escape me.

Another original souvenir telling the story of the Coronation in words and 'sparkling' pictures.

It’s lovely to see strings of flags waving in the breeze as shops, homes and businesses roll out the bunting for the jubilee.
I will be taking a few days off over the bank holiday weekend (unless it’s raining!) so it may take a little longer to answer/leave comments.
Have a great weekend everyone! Barbara
