These were the adults who organised the coronation street party in Hertford Street, Landport.

Barry’s dad, Albert Haines, is on the left with Molly Dagnell next to him, then Mrs Samphire, his mum Dorothy Haines, Mrs Norgate, Edy Evans, his sister Brenda Haines, Mrs Weston and, Barry thinks, Mrs Beard.

Barry adds: ‘After this picture was taken they all went into Molly Dagnell’s bungalow and served tea to we kids.’
