    DescriptionAll the pomp and circumstance of over 100 years of royal events come together in this colourful and evocative Royal Scrapbook, which celebrates the coronations, weddings and jubilees over 5 reigns, beginning with Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee and ending witht the celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee. Here are all the souvenirs, from badges and bunting to pencils and money boxes, which have captured the flavour of each memorable moment: souvenirs that have been treasured and handed down from one generation to the next. Included are not only the more enduring items: the commemmorative flags, mugs, jigsaws and chocolate tins but also the ephemera, whether milk bottle tops, sweet wrappers or paper hats. Now for the first time, this Royal Scrapbook brongs together over 1,000 images magnificently illustrating royal festive occasions, for us to relive either with wonder or nostalgia. Once again material from the Robert Opie collection illuminates the past in a remarkable way.
