Hoards of people crowd Biggleswade Market Square in this photograph taken in 1953 when there was a carnival procession as part of the celebrations for the Queen’s coronation.

In the background you can see the distinctive building that is now home to Iceland and Lloyds Chemist but was utilised by several Biggleswade companies and organisations over the decades.
