Continuing the Royal theme, this photo of Buckingham Palace was most likely snapped by my gran, Ivy Alice Hibbitt (nee Dando), some time during the 1950's. The crowds were gathered perhaps to watch the Changing of the Guard, Trooping the Colour, or some other event. Buckingham Palace looks much cleaner these days, compared to the grey facade seen in this picture.

With the forthcoming marriage of Prince William & Catherine Middleton, I thought I'd post on a Royal theme with this image of the Coronation Coach located at the Royal Mews. This old picture was probably taken by my gran, Ivy Alice Hibbitt (nee Dando), some time during the 1950's.
