Festival of Britain 1951
This is one of the first "biggie" events I can remember. I was eight at the time and I remember the transformations they made in Chrisp Street market. All of the old time stall holders didn't want to move to the new area, they preferred to stay in the street. But eventually they got them all moved.
It's funny looking back on this it all looked so futuristic at the time. But if any of it has survived until now I'm sure it looks so 50's. I know Chrisp Street looks awful, or at least it did the last time I saw it in 2004.
