Product description

Illustrated magazine (24 Apr 1948) - Silver Wedding of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth
 
This late 1940s edition of the general interest pictorial magazine Illustrated (incorporating The Passing Show) focuses on the Silver Wedding of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother) on 28 April 1948, with an article by H. V. Morton; it also includes features on the Great Crested Grebe, the actor and theatrical producer Sir Ralph Richardson (including rehearsal photos for the comedy Royal Circle), Blackpool fans travelling to Wembley for the F.A. Cup Final, a new-born lamb, and the Cambridge Union, plus numerous advertisements for household goods etc.
 
Although this original vintage periodical shows assorted signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible, and would make an interesting addition to a collection of vintage ephemera or British royal memorabilia.
