On June 6, 1939, the train bearing their Majesties, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth passed through Richmond Hill. On the platform to greet them were Girl Guides, Brownies, Boy Scouts and Cubs in their uniforms, the pupils of Public and High Schools, children from the L.T.B. and O. Home as well as townspeople and folks from far and near.
Two pipers resplendent in their Teilts, played on the lawn east of the station.
Little Margaret Scott carried a bouquet of Richmond Hill roses to be tossed to the Queen. It fell short and was later delivered to the train in Toronto. (from Tweedsmuir History)
