The flurry of street parties marking the royal wedding prompted Bernard Baker to dig out this picture from 1977.
It was held in Desborough Close, Paulsgrove, Portsmouth, to mark the Queen’s silver jubilee.
Bernard said: ‘It poured with rain and we hastily had to put up the plastic sheet you can see in the picture.’
His sons are featured in the shot – the two lads dressed as clowns in front of the men holding up the sheeting – Brian, on the left, and Toni.
Bernard also submitted three other pictures which he thought would interest readers.
Two of them show Cowes and he believes they were taken about 1915 when the First World War was at its height.
But he would like some help with the final snap. Bernard thinks it might show either Hambledon bus stop or be somewhere at Horndean. He said that if it’s Horndean it would be before 1950. Can anyone pinpoint it?
