Princess Elizabeth came to Stroud in March 1950

In 1950 Princess Elizabeth visited Slimbridge, then came to Stroud to catch the train, calling in at the Imperial Hotel. Stroud High School pupils waved as the car went past, and one of them made a scrapbook about the event. We used this to make a display in the Town Council Office window, from Monday 18th to Monday 25th April, as it is the Queen’s 90th birthday on 21st April 2016
