I was the coronation queen aged about 9. Next to Margaret Flemming (who I am still in contact with) is Jean Culshaw. The crowning was done by Bill Spencer. I lived in Portland Street and if anyone has any other 'photos of the locality would love to see them.

Sylvia I remember your name. Didn't you have cousins at St Georges at the same time. I just have this vague memory. Can't remember any names.

Message from Buck Palace in Blackrod. Cousin Barbara Birchall did go to St Georges school. She is 2 yrs older than me. Margaret lives in Leyland and when I see her next will pass on your message.

Yep. Recall the name Barbara Birchall but can't recall the face.

Cliff you silly boy,Rod was the one who saved the queen because you were nattering in the girls yard. boom boom

Comment by: G. Abbot on 14th July 2008 at 19:54

Actually Rod was the local nancy.

Thanks for clearing that up, I sleep easy now
thanks again

You are partly right Kath. Parents moved to West Mount opposite the Connahs and socialised as part of St Georges crowd. Harry Flemming was Prince Phillip in the 'photo. Dont know any other names apart from the ones mentioned. I was an only child. Asked cousin Barbara if she remembered Cliff but says only vaguely. Sure the pic was taken at the bottom of Portland Street.

Comment by: G. Abbot on 16th July 2008 at 09:52

Cliff you are very welcome. Anytime I can be of help.

Comment by: kath byrne on 16th July 2008 at 19:15

Sylvia do you recall the Ingrams and the Masons related to Mrs Lancaster from the shop next door to Sheila Connah,s in Turner St.These are names I can just about remember.

Comment by: cliff higham on 13th September 2009 at 23:58

seems Joe Fairurst, owd georges bad boy, never appears of mumbles about old times, he was around in them days, must be a shy old boy these days, unless he,s pushin up sods somewhere.

Comment by: jon carter on 16th September 2009 at 10:17

Cliff cant see you on the pic. Is that May Queen Barabara Culshaw. Cliff do you recall the woodyard.
