Questions

1)  This tin was originally made in 1937 for the King's Coronation.  Do you think souvenir items like this were popular to buy?

 

2)  Queen Elizabeth is pictured on the tin with her sister when she was just a young Princess.  Can you tell which one out of the two she is?

 

3)  We have re-used this tin to put bandages in. Why do you think the 'Shell Dressing' was so big?
