Yes - very different times.
As I review all my 1954 pics I am struck every time by the way the royals, and travelling courtiers, dressed up to the hilt!!
The colonials (!!!!) expected the works - well, the officialdom organising everything did - and so the show got on the road (by ship).
So many pics show the Queen and her ladies in full "evening" dress in the heat of the day.
The temperatures would have been at their highest for most of that tour.
