VE Day Street Parties
In May 1945, as the war was coming to an end, Britain's streets were filled with trestle tables, chairs, bunting and thousands of smiling faces.
Most of the photographs here were loaned to the library for the preparation of this exhibition. The library cannot supply copies of any of the images from private collections. One photograph is available for copying as it belongs to the Archives and Heritage Collection; the image of the street party in Heeley Road, Selly Oak.
We hope you enjoy this online exhibition; click on the image or on the accompanying caption for a larger version.
Do you know which street this is?
