Village party

This is another picture showing Holloway’s Jubilee party.

Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in 1897 and just as people did for Queen Elizabeth last week, residents held celebrations to honour the occasion.

This photograph shows some finely dressed - and rather fine looking - young women leading a procession while a few of the men stand by to catch a glance.

Obviously there wouldn’t have been any television or radio for people to keep up with proceedings and it’s a pleasant thought that most people would have celebrated together outside.

Who knows, in another Century it could be our recent Jubilee celebrations that people look back on fondly.
