Crowning a princess, 1951

editorial image

This week’s photograph from the archives was published in the edition of Saturday, July 21, 1951.

According to the caption it shows Mrs WJ Ross, wife of Monifieth’s Provost, crowning the town’s Festival Princess.

Receiving the honour was Miss Aileen Fettes, 24 Rattray Street, and next to her is her Lady-In-Waiting, Miss Fay Burry, 76 High Street, Monifieth.

The caption does not elaborate on who the other young ladies are, but we might presume them to have also been in the running for the crown.
