Windsor - Castle - 26.5.1970

Wonderful Windsor Castle.

A postcard of the main gates in 1970 and below, same gates from Googlemaps today.

Just look at those crowds piling in.  When we visited this castle, for the second time in 1978 there were queues to enter, especially to see that wonderful Queen Mary Dolls House, then when we visited in winter 2005 the crowds weren't as heavy as this but the noticeable difference was the guards standing in certain positions around the Castle...  holding automatic shotguns of some sort across their chests.  Oh dear that is so sad as you can see there was hardly anyone there in 1970 below.

Looking over to Eton College.
