Some Hoylake locals are planning forthcoming street parties for the Royal Wedding, the Big Lunch and perhaps the Queens Diamond Jubilee in 2012. But Hoylake residents were having street parties years ago. The above images, kindly sent in by Ruth Treece show 1945 V.E. Day celebrations in Chapel Street. That curvy brick building in the road was an air-raid shelter I think and I’ve previously featured another photo of the same street party in this post.
If there are a few street parties happening in Hoylake for the Royal Wedding maybe I could put a map together? Leave a comment if you’ll be having sausage rolls, crisps and pop in your road this year!
