A gift from Canada found in Windsor, UK

Photo highlight: A thank you from Canada found in Windsor, UK

The Totem Pole in Windsor Great Park was a gift from the people of Canada to the Queen in 1958.

The Pole marks the centenary of British Columbia being proclaimed a Crown Colony by Queen Victoria in 1858 and is 100ft high (a foot for every year).

The pole was carved from a single log of Western Red Cedar, cut from a tree 600 years old.
