In honour of the death of Queen Elizabeth II, this week’s picture shows a snippet of the Coronation Parade that was held in Niagara-on-the-Lake on June 2, 1953. Members of the Reid family are featured here with a child dressed up as the Queen in a well-decorated crown-like carriage float. The parade featured bands, horses, and royal floats for the enjoyment of the community.
