This picture shows the coronation street party in Lawson Road, Southsea, and comes from Betty Young.

She wonders how many others recognise themselves having fun on that memorable day in 1953.

Betty is the little girl holding a basket and wearing a paper hat on the right, with her mother Maria kneeling beside her.

Her brother George is just out of the picture with only his arm showing on the top left of the photo. He is being held by a neighbour, Mrs Mullins.
