Notes / History Mitcham's May Queen for 1979, in a procession on route to Three Kings Piece, passing Fair Green.

The youngsters are pictured aboard a horse-drawn trap, traditionally provided for the occasion by the Sparrowhawk family, owners of a scap-yard near Beehive Bridge. Mitcham clocktower and the King's Arms pub are just visible in the background.
