TOTTENHAM'S STREET PARTIES  - V.E DAY 1945 AND QUEENS CORONATION 1953

 

Like many towns and cities across the nation the residents of Tottenham celebrated in the streets for two of the most memorable occasions in the 2oth Century. The end of hostilities in WW2 and the Victory in Europe (V.E DAY) celebrations in 1945 followed in 1953 with the celebration to commemorate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

Here are few photographs that capture these moments in Tottenham's history. Should you have any photographs from your streets then please do get in touch and let us have copies to add to the collection.
