Joseph Street VE Day Celebrations c1945

t14988This is the celebration that took place in Joseph Street, Portrack on VE Day 1945. I understand the object hanging above the residents is an effigy of Adolf Hitler. Joseph Street is where my paternal grandparents lived but would not be in this picture, they both died in 1944.

    • Vera Raby was also my aunt. My mother, Martha Smith moved to London but we came back to visit Grandmother Coxon at least twice a year. She lived in the end house in Joseph Street, by the school. Auntie Vera and Uncle Tommy lived on the same side, a few houses along. My grans friend Mrs Thomas lived over the road.
