Notes / History This street party (thought to have been held in Dalton Avenue) was one of many local events staged to celebrate the Queen's Silver Jubilee. Amongst the treats on offer were many children's favourites including fairy cakes and jelly and ice cream.

This picture captures various trends in 1970's fashion, from chunky knitwear and flared trousers, to wide collars and the increasingly popular track-suit.
