    Children in fancy dress in Stadium, The Hague for Queen Juliana's 40th Birthday.

  • Description

    Holland - Amsterdam and The Hague.

    Holland celebrates Queen Juliana's 40th birthday. Documentation states children dressed as farmers, farmer's wives, Chinese, elves, sunflowers, sailors, grenadiers, rabbits, Indians and pucks for the old Dutch game of goose play. They came into the well, the labyrinth, the prison, the inn and the playground. The pucks won the pool, which was filled with prizes of the National Lottery for the weak child. Holland has honoured Queen Juliana on her first birthday as Queen.
