The Diamond Jubilee Parade of 1897.

The Diamond Jubilee Parade for
Queen Victoria in 1897.
Once again with thanks to the enthusiastic hobby photographer William Henry Bailey, we get a chance to see how the residents of Cookham celebrated the event some 115 years ago. From knowledge that we have that Bailey was a Painter Decorator, it seems that he took this photo from outside his home of East Flint and mounted his camera on top of a tall step ladder. Again you can recognise quite a few buildings, that thank goodness still are being preserved today.
