About this image
Royal Visit By King George V and Queen Mary. The King and Queen seem to have be on a Royal Progress tour of the Nottinghamshire area for a few days. On the 24th June they visited a factory in Nottingham's Lace Market. They then visited Hucknall, Mansfield and Shirebrook on the 25th June. On the 26th of June they visited Retford ( all of these pictures can be seen on this web-site). The Retford pictures show the King looking very tired (and it should be remembered that these visits were only 3 months before the outbreak of World War 1).
