Queen Celebrating 60 Year Reign
The Royal Cypher of Queen Elizabeth which has been seen on Post Boxes for the last 60 years, pictured here in Queen Street Oxford. It was on this day in 1952 that our current Queen's father, George 6th died and Princess Elizabeth ascended to the throne to become Queen. All over Oxford today you could see the Union Flag flying from colleges and government buildings. This year there are plenty of events happening to mark this milestone, and I am sure you will see a few posted here.
