Ashfield Street, coronation street party decorations (Woodhouse)
Black & White image1953. Photograph by local resident, Herbert Thompson showing decoration and bunting stretching across Ashfield Street in celebration of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Mr. Thompson of number 41 Oxford Road (at the junction with Ashfield Street) had been helping to put up the decorations and later was involved in furnishing the street with tables and chairs. All the local families in this close-knit community got together to provide food and drink for the pary. Two large Union Jacks are displayed in the centre of the street and a sign most likely reads 'Long May She Reign'. On the right-hand side of the street a beer barrel is mounted on a table. The photograph is taken from Oxford Road looking towards Cambridge Road where a woman can be seen standing at the junction. Posters and advertising boards cover the gable ends of Claro Place and Claro Grove. The houses in the background, with windows facing are in Claro Place.
