We’re now just one full work week away from the Diamond Jubilee celebrations that will be held from June 2-5, 2012. To get in the spirit of the celebrations, I’ve decided to have a look back at previous Jubilees. This will be only the second time the UK has celebrated a Diamond Jubilee (the first was Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897). So it’s not exactly a common phenomenon.
With the help of Art.co.uk, I’ve managed to find a variety photos from Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897, along with photos of King George V’s and Queen Elizabeth II’s silver jubilees (1935 and 1977 respectively).
I hope you enjoy them and you can find all of them by using the jubilee tag.
