A beautiful embroidered sampler from that exciting Royal Visit in 1954, the first time a reigning monarch had ever visited Australia. The sampler originally belonged to my sister but she very generously gave it to me for my collection.
Next a bath towel from that visit. My mother bought me an identical towel in 1954 but I lost it somewhere in my travels and was very pleased when I was able to replace it via ebay.
Another ebay purchase, the pretty silk wall hanging is very unusual and perhaps
was part of a shop display for that memorable visit and now hangs on my wall.
