Throwback Thursday

With Victoria Day just celebrated this past Monday and Queen Victoria’s birthday tomorrow, this week’s Throwback Thursday Pic is of the Royal Family taken during World War II. Those in the photograph from left to right are King George VI, Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth and Princess Elizabeth (current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II). King George VI and Queen Elizabeth had visited Windsor on 6 June, 1939 during their cross Canada train tour. The future Queen Elizabeth II would visit Windsor in 1951, 1959 and 1984. If you would like to see other historic photographs of Windsor, please visit the digital exhibit “Windsor’s History and Pictures” at http://heritage.windsorpubliclibrary.com/.
