I was given these to pictures in digital format when I took over being Archivist, with no indication of who lent them to the Archive to scan, what the occasion was or the date. If anyone can help please contact the Archive via the link on the front page.
Clearly, there are union flags around the dais where the vicar and dignitaries are standing and there is greenery across the front.
I don't know if the two pictures are of the same occasion but people appear to be holding a service sheet of the same size.
As the vicar is taking the service, why here and not in St Mary's?
Do you recognise anyone in either photograph?
The name on the shop across the Square is Applegate and to the left of the picture next to this shop is Barclays Bank Limited.
Looking at the clothing, it is obviously not a cold day.
Possible occasions - Coronation of George V in 1911; coronation of George VI in 1937; or something else. People do not look as if they are mourning the loss of anyone.
