There was a picture, if memory serves me correct of a party near the Paxton Arms pub, which is near Pleydel Street.
The guy that ran the Palace mag, Chris Thomas occasionaly posts on here, could be worth PMing him or the auther of the local history pieces, Gerry (a local historian) runs a second hand book shop on Haynes Lane market so you could ask him.

I have just had a look at the history section on the palace mag website and seem to have drawn a blank. The nearest picture is of a V1 bombing near the Paxton Arms pub but I'm sure I've seen pictures of the street parties somewhere.
Still, looks like Chris Thomas or Jerry Green could be good people to ask where they get their pictures from. You may have better luck contacting Chris on his website.
