STRATFORDIANS have been out in force paying tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II who died last week.
Bouquets of flowers have been laid at the Swan Fountain on the Bancroft Gardens. Residents and local dignitaries signed the condolence books at the town hall, Elizabeth House council offices and Holy Trinity Church.
Flags flew at half mast, while shopkeepers and even bus drivers, paid their own royal tributes.
Observer photographer Marcus Mingins was on hand to snap up this historic moment.
