|Date Photo Taken||9th August 1902|
|Notes / History||Sports on Lower Green, Mitcham, during the Coronation Celebrations for Edward VII.
Although Edward's coronation had originally been scheduled for June, it was postponed until 9 August so he could receive treatment for an abdominal cyst. In addition to the sporting entertainments, Mitcham's celebration also featured a procession of decorated vehicles.
This picture and no 18-1 are two separate photographs, but join together to make a panoramic shot.
