Queen VictoriasMoreThe Golden Jubilee of 1887 was a unique occasion in British history. The only other monarch to reign for fifty years was George III, whose Jubilee fell at a time of war between Britain and Europe, and so passed without ceremony.

Queen Victorias popularity had declined in later years due to her seclusion and excessive mourning after the death of Prince Albert, and the Jubilee was seized upon by Parliament as a perfect excuse to restore colour and pageantry to the image of the royal family.It was indeed a family occasion, attended by Queen Victorias relations and guests from all over the Empire. This book provides a unique photographic record of many of the well-known personalities in their fine clothes and jewels, the splendid ceremonial procession to Westminster Abbey, the Great Review at Spithead and both formal and informal celebrations in London and the countryside.

Every town and village was swept up in enthusiastic demonstrations of loyalty to the Queen. The streets were decked with flags and flowers- Jubilee dinners and parties for the children were provided by local councils, and many processions, bands and bonfires marked the occasion. At no other time had the nation united in such a display of love and loyalty for their monarch.Published to mark the centenary of the Jubilee and the 150th anniversary of Victorias accession to the throne, this book brings together a stunning collection of period photographs, many previously unpublished.

Detailed captions provide interesting historical anecdotes and little-known information about Victoria and her subjects, and the whole event is set in context by background information and photographs to recreate the atmosphere of the Britain of the 1880s.
