Description

A collection of stories and souvenirs from all over Britain, from those who were actually in Westminster Abbey on Coronation Day to those who crowded into the sitting-rooms of the country's few television owners. The book's main theme is that in a very real sense the post-war period began with Coronation Day - the pageantry and the ceremonial, the parades and the bands, occasioned a patriotic fervour that many would not forget.show more
