the queen’s visit
January 4, 2021
Happy New Year from the staff, board, and volunteers of the Greater Vernon Museum & Archives!
Did you, perchance, take some time over the holidays to binge watch some programs like, say, The Queen’s Gambit or The Crown?
While we don’t have any local footage of chess tournaments in the North Okanagan to offer (not to say there weren’t riveting local competitions!), we do have wonderful, clear footage of Queen Elizabeth II’s visit to Vernon in 1959.
