6 Feet from the Queen

STORY BY: Susan Finlay
YEAR: 1962
LOCATION: Winnipeg, MB

When recently-crowned Queen Elizabeth toured Canada in 1952, Susan was 12 years. She was given the day off school, and remembers watching the Queen drive by on a residential street in Winnipeg, standing only 6 feet away from her. Thanks for sharing, Susan.
