Coronation Celebration Erdington

Lynda Harvey

Brummie Born and Bred
I came across this photo the other day of the coronation party of my friends and neighbours of Abbey Road and St Thomas Road Erdington. The picture was taken outside of our back garden in Abbey Road on the right. I cannot remember all the names now will try and list some of the families who were there:-
The Andersons, the Shepherds, the Woolastons, the Whites, the Winkworths, the Haywoods, the birds, the Davis's the Parkes tje Newhalls, the Phones, the Lorenzens, the Rileys, the Harris, the Pughs and many more. It really is good to see the old faces from 55 years ago.

I would love to know where this was taken. It just had Coronation on the back. Jean. PS Just had a closer look and I think it reads on the window "Dining room upstairs". It could well be Mr Minty's cafe in Franchise street?.

Lynda just had a look at your photo from 2009, you say there were the Pughs in the group, my grandparents were called Pugh I wonder if they were related to my family Denise
