Here's another nice old vintage magazine and this has some great photographs and illustrations. THE CORONATION OF HER MAJESTY APPROVED SOUVENIR PROGRAMME 2nd june 1953.

There are some wonderful black and white photographs & illustrations and this vintage copy is in a remarkable condition considering its 57 years old.
Published by Gracious Permission of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II.
With a 'foreword' by His Royal Highness The Duke Of Gloucester.

A complete schedule of the Coronation Process and a map of the procession route on the centre pages.
What a wonderful old vintage magazine, I did read online that this is rare/valuable but you cannot believe all you read!
There's an article about the Coronation Ceremony by the Hon. Sir George Bellew, Garter Principle King Of Arms.
There's also a Genealogical Table showing the decent of the crown right back to William the Conqueror.

Talking of 'rare and valuable' that reminds me of one of my listings of photography books that sold earlier today, I posted some photos earlier for the winning bidder (an absolute star!), but that's another story. Its late and I need some sleep.

Thanks for looking!
