    This is a truly fabulous piece of footage. Not many people know that it was The Queen\'s House which was chosen to be the symbolic venue for the \'opening\' of the National Maritime Museum with a golden key (whereabouts unknown) used by Queen Elizabeth.
    I believe, Queen Mary (the Queen Mother) had officially visited the Queen\'s House on 4 July 1935 because she was very interested in the restoration being carried out on the \'ancient monument\', which next year (2016) celebrates it\'s 400th anniversary.
    The opening of the NMM was originally planned for 1936. However, the death of George V & the subsequent abdication of Edward VIII enforced a degree of rescheduling.
