Taken from our 5th floor flat, Far East Mansions138 viewsTaken from our 5th floor flat, Far East Mansions, circa 1968. I am not sure what the occasion is but that small marquee is set up right outside the flat that was used as the families club so would assume there was a do of some kind on, complete with marching band.
