BRIGG MARKS THE 60th ANNIVERSARY OF THE CORONATION
Many pictures of Brigg have survived marking Coronations and Royal Jubilees down the decades. We thought Brigg Blog should take one for posterity in June 2013. Maybe a century from now someone will find it of interest, just as we are fascinated by images from long ago that show the patriotic flags flying. For the benefit of the 22nd century historians, the shops in question are Wallhead's (left) and Brigg Fruit and Veg (right). Well done to Messrs Wallhead and Teague, the respective proprietors, for marking the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation in a fitting manner. Also in shot is some of the decorative town centre bunting that's intended to stay in place for the remainder of the summer.
