Tree Planting - 1952
Tree planting ceremony in 1952 - it looks like winter so may have some connection with the new sovereign following the death of George VI? The names are Mr Train - Junior Head (Tom Cowan's predecessor), Miss Peacock - Infant Head, Alderman John Barker, The Mayor Mr H Billington (presumably Miss Billington's father and therefore also the father of the late Mrs Saunders) and Mr Rolls - Parks Superintendent.
