Title

Waiting for the Queen

Date

13 February 1954

Subject

Royal Tour, 1954

Description

This view of Baylis Street gives a great impression of just how grand an occasion the visit was. The huge crowds, the opulent dais, the welcoming arch, the buildings strewn with coloured bunting, and even the street lined with uniformed men, all combines to show just how impressive it must have seemed to everyone at the time, and goes a little way to explaining why it still ranks as a day to remember in Wagga's history.
