Queen Elizabeth II visit to Dannevirke 1954

On 7 January 1954, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip briefly visited Dannevirke.  The royal train arrives at time marker 3:56.

It’s a fascinating view into Dannevirke and Royalty of times past. Can you identify any relatives? Please comment if you do – we’d love to know!

Film taken by Maurice France. Purchased by the Dannevirke Borough Council in 1955 to serve as a record of the Queen’s visit, which was part of the Royal Tour of NZ.  The film is now stored at Archives Central on behalf of Tararua District Council.
