Happy Jubilee Weekend!

Tomorrow the country will be celebrating 60 years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth.  The photograph above shows the coronation announcement outside Stornoway Town Hall on the 2nd June 1953.  As you can see the announcement garnered the attention of a large crowd of people.

Coronation year memorabilia was as popular in 1953 as it is now!  The image above shows a class of Sandwickhill School with a coronation crest stamped upon the picture mount.

Happy Diamond Jubilee Liz!
