1950s - street scene with shops


Recommended Posts

Does this - by some fluke - ring a bell with anybody?

 

Judging from the Kodachrome slide mount this is 1950-1955

Barclay's Brewery, Bankside, London.

However, there is still a Davies Ironmongers in Swansea...

Still looks to me like a North London 1920s or 30s arcade though.

The brickwork looks rather North Londonish, doesn't it? I wouldn't necessarily give too much weight to the RNLI. It's obviously a festival of some kind with floats and since the RNLI is a national organisation there might be a good reason why they took part in this particular event, wherever it was.

I do not know if these are from the same event but presumably they are - the slides are old Kodachrome's and without any numbering.

 

They were in a mixed box called 'UK Miscellaneous 1950s'

Agreed, and it's too flat to be a Welsh coastal town. I've looked at a few now...

 

On google Image search I selected the top section and as people have suggested it returns South East towns and London.

 

More fun than key wording!

 

RNLI flag and now a naval band? Coastal town?

I'll have to find some old aircraft for you😄

Although it more resembles a MiG-15 I presume the 'aircraft' is based on a Saab 29 'Flying Barrel'. Totally of no help to the search though.
