Royal Tour 1954 - crowds [RW1574.488] (5).jpg

Title

Waiting for the Queen

Date

13 February 1954

Subject

Royal Tour, 1954

Description

Those who had been chosen to be presented to Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh were seated here on the northern side of the dais, facing Baylis Street. We can only guess at the identities of two of the people here - possibly a Catholic bishop (Bishop Henschke?) and a Catholic or Anglican minister...
The verandah visible behind the people was situated approximately where the front door to the Museum of the Riverina is today.
