Queen Elizabeth II visit to Elizabeth in 1977

To commemorate the visit of Queen Elizabeth II to the City of Elizabeth in 1977, a beautiful leather bound book was produced.  A calligrapher has inscribed the book and painted in great detail crest of Her Majesty and the City of Elizabeth. 
The album contains the Queens signature, signatures of the Queens household and Councillors who attended the luncheon. A selection of photographs have been included in the visit.
Designed and illuminated by E.M. Seymour, Aldgate.
Photographs by Pat Quigley.
The album forms part of the City of Playford Councils local history collection.
