The Queens Diamond Jubilee Celebrations P2 of 3
Whilst we waited for our fish and chip lunch to arrive people
recalled watching the event on their TV at home, although we have to remember
that not everyone owned a television back in 1953. Where were you on
Coronation day? " I was outside The Palace” one gent recalls, " on guard duty,
I had a spectacular view of the event”
"I watched in Church Street, Bilston, I watched the whole thing on a television in a shop window” said one lady "well me and my brothers went next door with our mom and dad, "well, they had a telly, we couldn’t afford one. "We went to the Town Hall at Bilston; they had a dance on that night, there was lots of folk about, everyone enjoyed themselves.
