The Queen's visit - rescheduled - 12th Aug 1960

Having been originally scheduled for 11th Aug 1959 the visit was cancelled with four days' notice, eventually taking place twelve months later on 12th August 1960.

Escorting the Queen is the Lord Lieutenant, Robert Scarth (my mother's uncle), whilst Mrs Rosetta Groundwater, the Provost of Stromness, accompanies the Duke of Edinburgh.

Would you mind if I used your photos of the Queens visit for a window display for the jubilee? If you want more details please feel free to email.
