Description

Children clap in welcome for Her Majesty Elizabeth The Queen Mother of England during her 1954 visit to Williamsburg, Virginia. During her visit, the Queen Mother had dinner in King's Arms Tavern, enjoyed a carriage ride around the Historic Area, and received a handmade cribbage board and silver tea set. The Queen Mother's visit preceded her daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, by three years, who would come to celebrate the 350th anniversary of Jamestown's founding.
