THIS week launched of a review of Royston's conservation area led to a number of comments about the Festival of Britain plaque in the Priory Memorial Gardens.
It was said that it should be restored - and perhaps put in a different location.
Our photograph shows Col Eric Phillips, chairman of the then Royston Urban District Council, unveiling the plaque on August 5, 1951.
Looking on is Councillor Arthur Cain, who was chairman of the Festival Week committee.
