Framed Coronation Flag from 1937.

Finally got around to framing this Coronation Flag from the coronation of George VI and Queen Elizabeth from 1937 that I found in a thrift shop a couple of years ago. It’s in a shadowbox with a reproduction of a commemorative postcard from the time against a background of images from the coronation day and other coronation activities.

Hardly a professional framing job, but I was pleased to have cobbled it together from a new $30 frame, two older frames scavenged for their glass, archival double-sided tape, and a print from Costco. I wish I had a real framing budget, but if I had a real framing budget I’d run out of wall space really quickly. Actually I’m already out of wall space, with dozens of framing projects still to go, so it’s probably a good thing that it takes me years to get around to framing things like this…

(I’ve since taken it out of the frame, repositioned the postcard since it was on an angle, then reassembled it all. It was three separate pieces of glass, so sometimes it was hard keeping everything aligned. I didn’t photograph the change, but it’s just like above only a little more straight.
