CliffB, hi! Looking through your photos, I would suggest two are of the carnival. Not sure if the carnival passed that way but more than likely through what was to become Pool Meadow from the Burges. Needs more checking. But yes, first class & second class etc, know your place, they did drum it in, in those days.

Gosford Pool on a beautiful sunny afternoon, 1958. A boy dives in the shallow end like a spear entering the water, he takes three dolphin kicks under water, rolls, pushes off the far end, and like a beautiful dolphin, surfaces, his arms out in front. Parts his hands, pulls the water and surges forward - he was the nearest thing to a fish I had ever seen, it was sheer joy to stand and watch. Coventry's own Graham Symonds.

Hi Kaga, could be the carnival, the outfit the lady is wearing in Queens Road is quite distinctive so I think I will find it when I get around to it. The class thing was a big deal back then, could be my imagination but I have an image of my mom tugging her forelock in the corner shop. Roll eyes
