Title

Waiting for the Queen

Date

13 February 1954

Subject

Royal Tour, 1954

Description

Crowds lined the verandahs of Baylis and Fitzmaurice Streets, so as to gain a vantage point to see the Queen and Duke as they passed by.
And not to be outdone by those who managed to find a spot on the pub verandahs, some people climbed out of upper-floor windows and put chairs and picnic blankets on the cantilever verandahs of shops.
