Today we mark the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Hunters Hill got the Royal treatment when she visited in 1954.

The image above was located in the archives by Hunters Hill Historical Society President Chris Schofield.

It shows the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh being driven through Hunters Hill on Royal visit to Australia.

The location is going past Boronia Park, on Ryde Road.

Hunters Hill residents turned out to cheer her on her way.

More material above from the Hunters Hill Museum archives, thanks to the Hunters Hill Historical Society, regarding the Royal visit in 1954.

The photos above show the former Figtree Bridge before the Church Street overpass was built.
