She wasn’t Queen for another two years, but Princess Elizabeth and Prince Phillip did spend time in Thunder Bay.

During a five week visit across Canada, the royals spent two days in the area on Oct. 28 & 29 in 1951.

The visit was full of pomp and circumstance as the red carpet was rolled out for the soon to be Queen and her beau.

In one photo you can see the pair on the steps of old Fort William City Hall waving to an impressive crowd.
