Ten years ago today I created the 136th post for Greenford 365. To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.
It is Queen Elizabeth the Second’s Platinum Jubilee year, she is the first person to serve as British Monarch for seventy years. Ten years ago I recorded some of the many decorations and the events that took place to mark her Diamond Jubilee but this time there is less evidence in Greenford of any celebration. It may be that the people who would have found the anniversary significant to them have moved away or died. We may be distracted by economic challenges that are a consequence of the pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The local demographic has certainly changed in the last ten years but, perhaps, so has our perception of the Royal Family.
