They were just boys and came from poor backgrounds but had wracked their brains to come up with something that would contribute to the festive spirit of the day. The answer was strips of brown paper tightly rolled to look like cigars! So as the Queen drove by they felt like real swells cheering and brandishing their "cigars".

A Day Around London

The day rock 'n' roll singer Eddie Cochran was killed, I went around London and had my picture taken on Eros, then in the evening I went with my friend to see Adam Faith on stage.  It was a sad day because of the death of Eddie C. but we did enjoy Adam F. I also took a picture of a young 'bobby' which I still have to this very day. I was a teenager at the time. Great memories!

Someone held a fancy dress Coronation party for all the kids on the street (Benson Road). My dad worked near Tower Bridge, which he always complained went up when he was late for work.

1960's

The George Inn in Southwark was one of the favourite watering holes and eating houses for the young men of the accounts department of Borax Consolidated Ltd. in Victoria. In those days the serving wenches were all dressed in Dickensian costume and we would order a steak and kidney pudding. I don't mean individual puddings but a large ...Read full memory

History

Jubilee day was the perfect occasion for royal pageantry. After a service at St Paul’s, the ageing Queen was driven in her state coach past Parliament and across this crowded bridge, escorted by her loyal troops. The bridge is decked with garlands.
