Lancashire Telegraph: Royal watchers on Bolton Road, Blackburn, 1968

Hundreds of schoolchildren lined Bolton Road in Blackburn to cheer the Queen as she was driven from Darwen to Blackburn as part of a royal visit.

If the Royal Infirmary sign didn’t tell you where exactly on Bolton Road there were, the nurses in uniform all lined up behind the children probably would.

Were you lining the road? What are your memories of the day?
