Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: Brownies on parade for Royal visit

Girl Guide cookies will be on sale in April, so make sure to pick up a box and support our local unit. Here’s a photo of our 1939 Brownies unit marching down King Street to see King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (current Queen Elizabeth II’s parents) during their 1939 Royal Tour of Canada. The Royal Tour was the first time a reigning monarch set foot on Canadian soil and many Canadians came out to celebrate. You can see the train tracks at the bottom left corner and the house at 169 King St. in the background.
