Notes / History Elizabethan Pageant held on Lower Green, Mitcham, during the coronation celebrations for George V.

The pageant commemorated Mitcham's links to Elizabeth I. The photograph shows Elizabeth I, played by Miss Alice Smith, arriving at Lower Green after a procession through Mitcham.

The large building in the background was the local Methodist church, constructed in 1877. This was replaced by the current church during the 1970s.
