Miss Lucy Burkenshaw was given this spoon when she was nine years old at Firs Hill Community Primary School. The coronation of King Edward VII was held in 1902. It was traditional to give small gifts to the city’s children to commemorate royal events. Schools in Pitsmoor were given electroplated spoons to give to the children. The coronation of King Edward had to be postponed from June to August 1902 because he was diagnosed with appendicitis.
