Title

Waiting for the Queen

Date

13 February 1954

Subject

Royal Tour, 1954

Description

Those lucky enough to have grabbed a seat on this temporary stand in the Victory Memorial Gardens had a front seat to the action. The dais, where Queen Elizabeth received Wagga's dignitaries, was positioned directly across the road in front of the Council Chambers.
The photographers here didn't have the luxury of umbrellas to keep the sun off, even though they must have been worried about the effect of the midday February heat on their cameras.
