55 Years Ago.
February 6,1952 Queen Elizabeth was crowned Queen of England 55 years ago today oh so long ago !!! I remember watching it on the T.V in all the furniture stores on wellington street.They had all of their T.V in the store going all at once.We all stood outside watching in amassment.I think I was up at 4:AM listening to it on the radio.I remember Allies furniture store, Belanger furniture,Fifth Avenue dept store,there was another one on Wellington near Church I think it was called Woodwards ? That was a lot of furniture stores on Wellington street. In later years there was one at 3rd and Wellington forgot the name.That was the days when shopping on Wellinton was the only place to shop or St Catherine street.I still enjoy shopping on a street I don't like malls.
