Treasures of The Past

Watching the Queens Jubilee on television inspired me to rummage through the library shelves and find my Coronation Book, that is my Coronation Book of their Majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

I was given this most cherished book from my first employer when I lived in England, Beryl Kelland who owned and operated the Ardley Boarding Kennels near Bisester Oxfordshire. Inside the book I found some news clippings that I had stuck in.

But the photos in the book are of this remarkable family and its a thrill to look back and see what this family has been through.
From the death of King George V to the brief reign of King Edward VII, then to the reign of King George VI,  her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's father.

  2. What a wonderful collection of history. Thank you so much for sharing it with us, Doc. :o)

  3. I'VE GOT THAT BOOK TOO!!! If only I knew where.

  4. Such a wonderful book, those early pictures of the Royal family and Her Majesty as a young girl, just spectacular..
    I can understand why it is so special to you.
