Yes, Jan, I remmeber those hats. Quite spectacular some of them. I have a photo here at home of me as a five year-old, at Battersea Park on Easter Sunday 1952. holding hands with two prety young ladies who were both dressed as Nell Gwynn and carrying baskets of oranges. Hopefully those ladies are still enjoying life, they would be in their eighties by now.
I'm sure rationing was still on at that time, because I can clearly remember my mum buying me sweets in Morrish's in Manor Place and handing over her ration book.
