Staffordshire’s Senior Museums Officer, Chris Copp, dips once again into the
comprehensive picture collection of Gazette reader, Eccleshall’s Pat Trevor …
We now have a second selection of images from Stone’s celebrations for the Coronation of 1953, from an album of photographs compiled by Mr W.H. Bowers at the time, and kindly lent by Stone Town Council.
Although the Diamond Jubilee celebrations took place last summer, the original festivities took place not in 1952 at the time of her accession, but in 1953, celebrating the occasion of Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation in Westminster Abbey on 2nd June.
These details and all the images featured will shortly be seen on the Staffordshire Past Track website (www.staffspasttrack.org.uk). If you have any images to lend, or any extra information, please contact the Past Track team: Staffordshire Past Track, Staffordshire Archives & Heritage, Shugborough, Milford, Stafford ST17 0XB.
