Queen Elizabeth II - the first ten years

Recently when cleaning out my dad's belongings, we came across this old magazine from 1963.  My mom had saved it, but I didn't remember seeing it before, or maybe I wasn't interested as a kid.  She must have picked it up in England.

Queen Eliz II magazine cover

It was interesting in 2022, to glance through the pages and get a glimpse of 1963 England.  The advertisements were such a time capsule, and mostly ads for expensive things like Rolls Royce, top notch clothing, jewelry and insurance.  The finer things in life for privileged people.  A different world from today... or is it?

Well it's now the end of an era and the Queen is no longer with us, and we can look forward to a new post-covid era... with King Charles III.  Like they say, a change is as good as a rest.


Thanks for reading my Maui blog...

I don’t know much of about any of this and especially the early early years of it all

Good morning Georgie,

What a discovery from the past. She had been the Queen for so long its interesting to look back through the years in her reign. Thanks for sharing.

Every time I see a photo of Queen Elizabeth taken during that era, I think of my own mother.  I often thought the two looked enough alike to have been sisters.

You're right - there's quite a resemblance!

Hi Georgie- that must have been so interesting. When I find things like this I love to sit down and take a journey back in time. I wasn't that long ago and yet in many ways it was.

That is really cool.  We have been clearing out my parent's home for renovation and although it hasn't been much fun, coming across memorable things has put a smile on our faces.
