Royal Visit - 1947

Reader Kevin Watson was kind enough to scan and send along the official souvenir programme issued for the visit of King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and the Princesses Elizabeth and Maragaret to Durban in 1947. The programme forms a valuable insight into how they organised things in those far-off days. The document was issued on behalf of the City Council and is similar in look and feel to other publications issue by the City on special occasions including the visit of HMS Durban, to Durban in 1929.

One of these days, I'll hopefully manage to input the text but, in the meantime, the pictures are big enough to read. Just click each thumbnail to read the page.
