WITH the Queen’s Jubilee just around the corner Looking Back reader Debra Sabri has sent her memories of the celebrations of the Queen’s Accession to the throne.

The two photographs were taken at a street party in Downs Avenue, Eastbourne.

Debra writes, “They show my grandfather (we called him Grandpop) proudly placing the cake he’d made in pride of place on the table and notice where he put his cigarette to keep his hands free! The other picture shows my grandmother cutting the cake.”
