From the Fortnum and Mason van, London - A street like Piccadilly or Regent Street. Maybe end of WW2? (A first guess)

john bunyan, Good Call, it is London.

  Macscouse 21:08 PM 07 Dec 12

Could be the Coronation of George VI, or the Festival of Britain.

  Aitchbee 21:11 PM 07 Dec 12

The birth of a member of the Royal Family circa 1948 in London's Pall Mall.

I'm with Macscouse in thinking the coronation in 1936. The cars look to be about that era.

I would think any Londoner would spot where exactly from the shop names etc. As I have a song playing at this moment which ends "She sits with me, and drinks her tea, which tickles them to death" I will guess at a banking area "Throgmorton street is a name which has suddenly materialised in my mind but I am wondering if I have made it up.

I also agree with Macscouse. Coronation 1937 (not '36)

  Brumas 21:20 PM 07 Dec 12

I think it will be practically impossible to work out , from the decorations, exactly what was being celebrated so I will enlighten you all - King George V Silver Jubilee.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. Looks like my memory is already condemned. Maybe I am getting mixed up with the opening of the Mersey tunnel.

  Bing.alau 21:24 PM 07 Dec 12

Now that you have told us when, how about where exactly?
