Pram Race at Annfield Football Stadium during the Royal Visit for the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, 18th May 1977

This fun race featuring ‘babies’ in the prams, ‘grannies’ pushing them and ‘nurses’ in attendance to change nappies was put on by young people from various youth clubs and groups from the Stirling area as part of the pageant event to celebrate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977. This event took place along with other activities at Stirling Albion’s Annfield Stadium.

The Queen and Prince Philip visited Stirling on the afternoon and evening of the 18th of May that year and met various groups of young people at the pageant and a dinner at Stirling Castle in the evening. As you can see, the teenagers taking part entered into the spirit of things with some gusto.
