What: Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Street Party Celebrations

When: 1977

Story: Photo showing everyday people at a street party honouring Elizabeth II's 25 years on the throne for her Silver Jubilee in 1977.

I wasn't even born in 1977, but whenever I see photos or video footage of the Silver Jubilee the thing that really stands out for me are the street parties. I suppose the reason is that Canadians tend not to hold them for the monarchy, despite the fact that Elizabeth II is also Queen of Canada. Just one of the interesting quirks that I've come to enjoy from the English.
