The Coronation celebration at Coleford in 1911.

A large crowd in Coleford (88k)

A busy scene in the center of Coleford. The Town Hall is on the left. The banner to the right of Trotters reads "God Save Our Gracious King" suggests that it may be a gathering to celebrate the coronation of King George V in 1911. People are looking in all directions but the centre of attention appears to be 2 horse drawn wagons in front of Trotters.
