The Coronation - My Story

The Coronation - My Story

I remember the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. It was 1953 and I was 4 years old.

My folks bought a TV, the first on our block, specifically to watch the Coronation. It had a tiny black and white screen, rabbit ears and a flickering picture that oozed a grey glow.

All our neighbors came over and our living room was packed.

I squeezed between their legs to get a view. My first view of history.
