editorial image

This gem, capturing children enjoying a Christmas Party in the Victoria Cafe in St Andrews in December 1953, was posted on St Andrews photo corner by Marjorie Dickens.

Lots of recognisable faces can be seen at the party hosted by Nurse Wilson.

A well-known character in the town, Nurse Wilson was famed for taking on the role of Santa each year and distributing presents to the children from the street.

Waitresses Nan Wallace and Betty Berry (Gordon) can also been seen.
