The Jubilee - part 3

In the 1950s the royal family were extremely popular and the country came together after the hardship of war to celebrate in style.  Street parties were the order of the day and the decorations had a real patriotic feel to them.

Easy clean, disposable tablecloths needed to be reflect the overall theme of the day.  This piece from the PHS collection would have adorned a table filled with sandwiches and sweet treats.  It must have been a very exciting time.
