1953 Kids Coronation Party

1953 Blantyre Coronation partyI like this photo. “Coronation Party Blantyre” written on the reverse. Incredibly that means i can date this precisely as 2nd June 1953. Photographed are kids celebrating the coronation of the Queen that day.  This photo means a lot to our family as the little girl in the middle right with ribbons in her hair is my mother, Janet Duncan who would have been about 6 at the time. Maybe one of the other kids is related to you?! These kids would have been born around 1945 – 1948 or so.

Anybody know the location? Maybe one of the parks in Blantyre?
