Royal Yacht Britannia, Lyttelton Harbour

Viewing the Royal Yacht Britannia on arrival of the Queen and family at Lyttelton Harbour for the 1974 Commonwealth Games held in Christchurch

Overall winner: 2018 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt

Judges' notes: "Photographically striking image with the juxtaposition of people and the size of the ship and the dark hull against the lighter sky and people. 1974 was a significant time in Christchurch’s history. There was a Royal visit as the Commonwealth Games were held in Christchurch."

"Easily identifiable as an era by the 1970s fashion. It also shows a different time by the public access to the wharf."

"Isabel has been a regular contributor to our photographic digital collection. Her images are a varied insight to Christchurch in the 1950s to 1970s."
