Do you recognise any of the children posing proudly in this photograph?

It shows the crowing of the Elton carnival Queen – Dorothy Heathcote.

The day was an important occasion in the village’s social calendar and this picture taken in 1935 shows a large group of youngsters dressed in their best clothes.

It was a happy event for small children and elegant teenagers, carrying beautiful bouquets of flowers.
