Queen Elizabeth Visits Manhattan 1957 - Found Photo

In October 1957, a young Queen Elizabeth II visited New York and the United Nations. In this photo crowds gather on Park Avenue in hopes of a glance at the Queen. I believe the Queen's car is the silver vehicle with the tail fins. This is the same vehicle seen in the photo taken on Broadway during the parade.
