Parade Carlin How

Parade Carlin How

Was it a Coronation celebration, a Carlin How Carnival or some other event; our title was taken from the postcard from which the image is derived. We asked if anybody could assist with a possible date or title for well attended activity? Bill Danby tells us: ”Looks like post-war, but not long after. I suggest the Festival of Britain, held in the Summer of 1951, with events all over the country. It was supposed to cheer up Britain after the long years of War and rationing. The costumes of the ladies are very reminiscent of the Festival Logo. Most likely Coronation Street, Carlin How.” However Derick Pearson disputes this, can anybody assist?

Carlin How Easter Bonnet Parade 1968

Middle row: Mrs Young, Pauline Harrison, Elaine Dyer,Mavis Hall (nee Young), Jean Forrest, Pam/Pat?, ??, ??.

Front row (adults): Edith Padget (nee Kitching), ?? , Ann Watson, ??.

Carole told us: “I think it is Pauline Harrison, daughter of Minnie Harrison; they lived in Dixon Street”, Sarah Keeler told us: “The third one at the back, near Hilda looks like my great gran, who was called Minnie Harrison”; whilst Malcolm Nellist advises: “The third in from the left at the back is Olive Cocks (my gran)!”.

Bill Kitching has told us: ”The woman on the far left bottom row of adults is my sister Edith Padget (nee Kitching). She was brought up in Steavenson Street and moved to Gladstone Street when she married and then on to Queen Street and finally moved to Saltburn.”

Sunday School Outing?

Sunday School Outing?

This could possibly be a view of a Sunday School or church outing in Carlin How Square, based upon the style of dress and the numbers of young people in the image. We are told by Derick Pearson: ”This was the Carlin How Wagonette trip in 1909. Some wagons/rulleys or carts as they were called were set up with seats but the others had benches taken from the pub and the Chapel which were then roped to the carts for safety. This would have a big event in those days.”
