coronation 1936

Came across this photograph of the 1936 Coronation celebrations in Ravenhurst St, Camp Hill. It's not the clearest of pictures but I can see my Great Grandmother and Great Aunt on it.

I'd love to know if anybody else has relatives on the photo. I have nobody left to ask now who the people were. Would imagine they were all from Ravenhurst St and Little Broom St.

Just to put the record straight, the pic shown is of a George V silver jubilee celebration (22/6/1911-1936). 12/5/1937 saw the coronation of George VI.

Yes, you're right. I should have read the caption more closely but somebody in the family had written 'coronation' on the back so I just copied that.
