Royal Tour 1954 - Welcome Arch [RW1574.488].jpg

Title

Welcome Arch, Baylis Street

Date

13 February 1954

Subject

Royal Tour, 1954

Description

Wagga had a number of these arches set up along the planned route of the Royal Progress. This particular one was in Baylis Street outside Great Southern Motors, just before the Morrow Street corner.
The fact that it was designed to be lit up at night just demonstrates how enthusiastic the City was to have the Royal Visit - the Queen and Duke were never to see this arch at night!
