The Queens Coronation Day<br>60th Jubilee
Title: The Queens Coronation Day
60th Jubilee

Description: To commemorate the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth IIís accession, we are delighted to bring to you this facsimile edition of the original Pitkin Guide.

On 6 February 1952, Princess Elizabeth succeeded to the throne on the untimely death of her father, King George VI. Her coronation in Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953 represented a day of pomp and ritual for the dignitaries attending the ceremony, and the excitement of colourful pageantry and national rejoicing for Her Majestyís subjects who lined the streets in the rain to cheer their new sovereign.

Sixty years on, in this Diamond Jubilee year, Pitkin is proud to publish their original illustrated guidebook to this historic event, a poignant and personal account seen through eyes of the late Beverley Nichols.
