[Visit of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to Bermuda, 24-25 November 1953], 1953-11-24 - 1953-11-25
Scope and Contents
Showing the Queen flanked by Archdeacon John Stow and the Governor, leaving St. Peter's Church.
There is a caption on the reverse of the print which reads:
'Leaving the square the party walked slowly towards St. Peter's oldest Anglican church in the western hemisphere. The steps of the church were lined by Girl Guides and Brownies. The Queen was greeted by Archdeacon John Stow, rector of St. Peter's, and with him climbed the steps and passed through the portals of the church which has been so closely linked with the history of the Colony. [In 1616 St. Peter's served as the first meeting place of the court of general assize, and within its walls the first General Assembly met in August 1620. The first Crown Governor sent to Bermuda, Sir Robert Robinson, had his first proclamation read in St. Peter's in 1687].'
The print is also annotated on the reverse with the reference 'ER 3A'.
