Flashback: Street parties and May Fairs

A FORMER Felixstowe resident now living in Denmark has sent us a nostalgic photo to share with readers.

Sylvia Kroer sent in the image of a street party in the Grange Farm Avenue area of Felixstowe held to celebrate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953. Sylvia wonders if readers can add any names to the photograph.

Meanwhile, in our archives we found an image of a little girl feeding a goat at the South Suffolk Show in May1964. Can you tell us any more?

Youngsters were photographed having fun at the Woolpit Street Fair in May 1996. Do you recognise anyone?

Or maybe you know something about GALAXY at Stoke by Nayland Middle School in March 1989.

The final picture found this week shows pupils from Springlands Primary School Sudbury with letters to the Queen and the Prime Minister in May 1983. Do you know any more about this?

If you can tell us anything about the pictures in flashback e-mail flashback@eadt.co.uk, or write to The Editor, East Anglian Daily Times, 30 Lower Brook Street, Ipswich, IP4 1AN
