This photograph has been particularly hard to identify. However,
it is likely to have been taken on Coronation Day, 12
May 1937. Crowds
braved the cold and wet weather and there was an evening a concert
on the Hall Leys Park by the Nightingale's Concert Party,
Miss Renee Mills's troupe of dancers, and the Ernest Bailey Secondary
School Folk Dancers. There was a large audience.
If you have any further information about the identity of anyone
in the photographs or confirmation of the date or event of the
