Shortstown Heritage

Fancy Dress Coronation 1953 2nd June

Shown here are photographs of a Fancy Dress Party held in Shortstown on June 2nd 1953. These images taken from Bedford & Luton archives BP Box 4850* show a party held to celebrate the Queen's Coronation in June 1953.
The captions all read 'Shortstown Fancy Dress Party' although it is unclear where it was held. Does anybody recognise these individuals? And the room the party was held in? It was possibly held in the RAW Social Club as there was no school or village hall at that time. Can anybody confirm this?

*Thanks must go again to John Day of Ampthillimges.com who has collated all these photographs.
