Matlock & District Coronation medal

This photograph has been particularly hard to identify. However, it is likely to have been taken on Coronation Day, 12 May 1937[1]. Crowds braved the cold and wet weather and there was an evening a concert on the Hall Leys Park by the Nightingale's Concert Party, Miss Renee Mills's troupe of dancers, and the Ernest Bailey Secondary School Folk Dancers. There was a large audience.

If you have any further information about the identity of anyone in the photographs or confirmation of the date or event of the second picture please contact the web mistress.
