Flying Ducks

For many years Hilda Ogden had three plaster flying ducks hanging on her 'murial' in 13 Coronation Street.

Now considered an icon of the show (they are used as a landmark in Coronation Street Monopoly), as well as being a popular kitsch/retro interior design accessory, the ducks were once a common decoration in homes across England. Three ducks appear in the 'bumper' sponsorship advertisements for Harveys, the Furniture Store.

As early as 1960 the set of ducks was part of the street design, appearing in Elsie Tanner's home, 11 Coronation Street. Those were the ducks that Hilda later got.
