Wonderful memories of a West Norwood Jubilee

She’s taller than I thought she’d be”…

The day that a queen vis­ited West Nor­wood with her corgi will live long in the memory of every­one who wit­nessed it. The town was resplen­dent, bedecked in red, white and blue. The streets were brought to a stand­still as Feast cel­eb­rated the Queen’s Dia­mond Jubilee. People watched with some­thing akin to won­der as the Feast Queen paraded regally along West Nor­wood High Street with her dog.

What a won­der­ful woman.

What a won­der­ful day.

And what a lovely bunch of people we live with in West Nor­wood.

Many hun­dreds turned out to cel­eb­rate and to share their memor­ies of the real Queen’s Coron­a­tion, sixty years ago. With them they brought their pho­tos and their memor­ies of 1952 when Queen Eliza­beth II ascen­ded to the throne.

We’ve pos­ted some of them here, but send us your pho­tos and we’ll cre­ate a gal­lery of your Coron­a­tion Day memor­ies.

Three cheers for the Queen!
