Name/Title

Photograph, Queen Elizabeth II visits Gore

About this object

In the summer of 1953-1954, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip toured New Zealand. It is thought that three in every four New Zealanders saw the Queen on this tour. This is because the Queen visited 46 towns/cities and attended 110 separate functions.

The Queen visited Gore on January 28, 1954. Queen Elizabeth drew massive crowds on this tour and Gore was no exception, as is evident in the photograph.

The Queen was hosted by the Women's Club at their rooms which was upstairs in H & J Smith before travelling on to Invercargill. Today, a commemorative plaque of this event can still be seen at the entrance to H & J Smith.
