Children get into the party spirit in this photograph taken during the Coronation celebrations back in 1953.

Tony Leivers sent the picture in and he thinks it was taken in Spinney Road in Ilkeston.

“Unless anyone knows better,” he said.

Parties were held all over the country, including across Ilkeston, for the Queen’s Coronation 60 years ago.
