Fun in the Park

Old photograph of Lake Meadows

By Maggie Roper

It is not known when the photograph below was taken, but it shows the Fire Brigade showing off the power of their hoses in Lake Meadows. It looks as though this is a competition to knock the balloon off the top of the post.

Was this part of a fête or perhaps even the Coronation celebrations which took place in 1953. We would love to know.
