VICKY ON PARADE 3

Queen Victoria was not in the least put out by having her postal image recorded from close to the beginning of her reign in 1837 as a vivacious young queen to her dowager and some might say dowdy years running up to her death in 1901. The stamps which follow span QV’s reign and span the 19th century British Empire too.
