Street Party Queens Coronation 1953 - a Memory of Ynysboeth.

I was born in 92 Avondale St and lived in 95 until I was 10yrs old. I remember the jazz bands and the fair ground that came every year at the end of Avondale, where the new Nant-y-Fedw is built. I also remember the Coronation street party; it was held in AB Metals factory canteen. Audrey Jones was Carnival Queen and I was one of the flower girls. I was 4yrs old. Does anyone remember this and have any photos? I know Audrey had one, met her a few years ago and she told me. I am doing my family tree so it would be great to have a photo of what I remember was a lovely time.
