Exhibit of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s visits to Newfoundland and Labrador opens at Government House
As part of the Celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the Accession to the Throne of Queen Elizabeth II on February 6th, an exhibit of photographs and mementos from the four visits of Her Majesty was unveiled at Government House.
The exhibit is located in the outer lobby with four photo boards featuring visits in 1951, 1959, 1978 and 1997.
Many of the photos and mementos are from the staff and others closely associated with the present day Government House.
Dale Russell Fitzpatrick points to a photograph of her presenting flowers to Queen Elizabeth II at the St. John’s Airport in 1959.
