Crown The King. - a Memory of Barrow-In-Furness.

I remember that once a year in the summer holidays they chose a different king of the island.They sat him on a regal high backed chair and crowned him by tossing a bottle of beer over his head.All that to take on the caretaker duties of the island.for one year.
