Christmas tree ceremony Wesley

What we know about this image :

The mayor is possibly Mr Breward  who was mayor at the time in 1957. The Christmas tree, a present from Norway because of links in the timber trade, was traditionally sited in front of Wesley Church every year. Interestingly it was lit up on 19th December whereas nowadays civic decorations are very visible at  least a month before this.
