NEW YORK TIMES, June 3, 1953
* Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II
The headline at the top of the front page announces: "ELIZABETH II CROWNED IN ABBEY; MILLIONS CHEER PARADE IN RAIN; RULER BIDS SUBJECTS LOOK AHEAD" with related subheads, and a photo of her and her family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. Much more inside. Queen Elizabeth II has now surpassed the reign of Queen Victoria, the previous longest reigning monarch in British history. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 64 pages, nice condition.
