HRH in 1954
Happy ANZAC weekend everyone. I haven't been very patriotic, what with my flu that has kept me in bed for the past three days. Still, I've been doing my own activity in remembering. My grandmother's house sold a month ago and we went through the giant task of clearing it out. Along the way we found boxes upon boxes of photographs and old slides that my grandfather took. He was a keen photographer, and I cannot even begin to tell you what a delight it's been to look through these photographs. I have learnt so much about my grandmother's life from them.
One of the series of photos I found in the boxes that delighted me was this four: Queen Elizabeth II's visit to Sydney in 1954. It was an incredibly momentous time for everyone here.
