These were the days when sandals were worn, like it or not, by girls and boys every summer.
This happy bunch were posing for the camera during the street party in Eastfield Road, Southsea, for the Queen’s coronation in 1953.

Jill, of Bramshott Road, Southsea, is standing next to her late sister Janet in the second row from the front. They are third and fourth from the left.
Anyone else recognise themselves?
