An exhibit at Queen's Park in Toronto will give visitors a chance to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee and remember her trips to Ontario.
The 60-in-60 exhibit includes photos and memorabilia from the Queen's six decades on the throne, and will be open to the public from May 4. It will continue into 2013.
The pictures — one for each year of her reign — are owned by the Office of the Lieutenant-Governor. Some images have been borrowed from Archives Canada, the Archives of Ontario and various newspapers.
"The more we dug, the more we found unique pictures that covered the Queen's visits during her 60 years on the throne, the visits here to the province of Ontario," says Lt.-Gov. David Onley. "Some of them are iconic, that will be very familiar to people, but other ones … are hidden gems."
Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla, will view the exhibit on May 22, during their four-day visit to Canada to mark the jubilee.
