Coronation of George VI - Toddlers' race

During the coronation festivities for King George VI the afternoon events in the Recreation Ground finished with children’s sports events. The photograph of the toddlers’ race shows the usual chaos with several non-starters, some running in the wrong direction, lots of distraught parents, and one girl picking her nose!

The High Street in Handcross was very well decorated as can be seen from picture #127 and picture #128.
I doubt that we shall ever see its like again.
