The Umbrellas of Abingdon

January 31, 2013

I have been looking back at umbrella pictures and found lots in June 2012, the month of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Umbrellas held Abingdon Style
1. An audience enjoy a performance by Larkmead School choir on Abingdon Market Place.

2. A group from St Helens Church enjoy the Jubilee street party.

    Rain brings forth umbrellas.

    Feel sorry for the ones getting pelted in the rain… being pelted by buns may not be so bad, though! Great pictures!

    Well I was there for every dripping, damp, and soaking wet event during the Abingdon Jubilee Celebrations and it was great!!! The atmosphere in Abingdon was fantastic!!!

    NOT cricket to use a brolly at a bun throwing. Awfully like cheating!

    i recall agreeing to visit the jubilee proms in the pouring rain with my parents as they promised a firework display. they didn’t mention it would be only a couple of minutes long while i got progressively colder and wetter.
    still, it did make for a memorable evening.

    Gosh, I had forgotten. It was a dreadful day here in Coventry. Because of the rain, the day will stand out more and judging by your photos everyone is having a great time at the street party, at least.

    a couple of people in the first photo must have wished they brought a brolly…

    Great post.

    Happy Theme Day :)

    I must admit to finding ’sunny’ countries somewhat dull. Rain brings forth brollies, but it brings forth greenery and character.

    Brollies are also found in the heat, and with Australians hardly able to breathe as an intense heatwave fastens itself on the country, I know where I prefer to be.
