The second picture also dated 1937 must be wrong as the Morris Minor Van in the centre of the picture was'nt manufactured until 1948. My guess would be 1952 or 1953

I would agree. The Morris van did not appear until May 1953. So this would date the picture to around the time of the floods. I went by the date Eileen had put on the photo, trusting her to be correct.

Mr Thoaupos gave the crown and I donated the medalion must be after 1960
