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, believing it to be elsewhere in East Cleveland; can anybody assist?

    This is possibly not Coronation Street, Carlin How. This view is looking down the street, in Coronation Street you would see houses on both sides as both sides were built in the same project. More importantly the large building on the left hand side has a facing gable end; it has two pillars and a circular window (Chapel type) on it upper frontage. There are no other buildings on the left side for quite some distance beyond the building. The distance between top downstairs window Lintel and the bedroom lower lintel are to many course of bricks apart. So this is definitely not Coronation street.In fact I can’t place this photo. It is not Gladstone or Queen Street or Grosvenor Terrace. It is not Carlin How Grand on the left as Steavenson Street roofs are staggered.I don’t know anywhere in Carlin How where this would fit so I suggest it is elsewhere?
