Children At Gala In Cupar On Coronation Day, 2nd June 1953

Children At Gala In Cupar On Coronation Day, 2nd June 1953

About this memory

Evelyn Whitefield (née Sime) centre-left in white dress.

“On my left in cardigan was Sheila Urquhart, and little girl with dark hair looking up at her big sister was Elspeth Curran. There was a gala organised for Coronation Day with events for children. It was probably organised by the Cupar Town Council. Hardly anyone owned a television on which to watch the coronation live so the outdoor gala was well attended.” – Evelyn Whitfield
