We are very lucky to have received some wonderful photos from Tony Downend. His father was a semi professional photographer and took many photos around Hyde.
Here are a few to begin with...
To celebrate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953....
Same view in 2010
The Coronation Crown outside Bayley Hall in Hyde Park 1953
Same view 2010
I haven't seen any other photos of this event so it makes it all the more special.
Thanks so much, Tony - I'm looking forward to showing off many more of your Fathers wonderful photographs on this blog!
