On Solihull’s Charter Day, 11th March 1954, Princess Margaret visited Solihull to present the Urban District with a Royal Charter of Incorporation as a Borough.
A group of local photographers and film-makers put together a film of the day’s events. The following is an extract showing some of the preparations.
The full video is on show until 5th April in the Heritage Gallery on the first floor of Solihull Central Library.
