MARION ERLIS - QUEEN MARY

This photograph shows Marion Erlis, centre-right, taking up her role as Queen Mary in one of the annual parades organised by the Orange Lodge in Toxteth.

 

Her 'husband' - William of Orange (or 'King Billy' as he was known) - is standing to her right holding up his sword.

 

The exact date the photograph was taken is unknown, but the parade's traditionally take place on or around the 12th July each year. Judging by Mal's apparent age, the year was potentially around the early 1950's.
