Dedication plaque at Brandon University, Brandon, Manitoba, Canada

"This stone was laid by Her Majesty The Queen on the twelfth day of July 1970"

In 1970, Queen Elizabeth II came to Canada to celebrate the Province of Manitoba's 100th anniversary as a member of the Canadian Confederation. This plaque was set into the wall of the John R. Brodie Science Centre to commemorate the visit.  It just struck me as funny to think of the Queen actually doing the masonry to physically mount this huge plaque. Perhaps her children, Prince Charles and Princess Anne, who accompanied her on the Royal Visit helped?
