Historypin Presents Pinning the Queen's History

This year marks Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. To mark the occasion Historypin has created a map of the Queen's official visits over the last sixty years. Historypin is designed for displaying historical photographs on Google Maps. Each pin on the Historypin map provides photographs from the Queen's visits to each location. You can browse the map to view photographs or simply use the list of official visits to find photographs. If you have photographs from one of the Queen's official visits you can pin them to the Historypin map too.

Applications for Education
Exploring Historypin's map of the Queen's official visits could be a good way for students to explore and ask questions about different parts of the world.
