  • Description

    Full titles read: "The Empire's Shop Window - Their Majesties The King & Queen & Duke & Duchess of York visit British Industries' Fair."

    London.

    M/S of the Duke of York (Prince Albert, later King George VI) and Duchess of York (Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother) getting out of a car and being greeted outside the exhibition; she looks very fashionable in a fur-trimmed coat.

    Several great shots inside the British Trade Industries' Fair as the Duke and Duchess and their entourage wander around looking at exhibits (the main one seems to be of terracotta pots). Queen Mary and King George V walk around the exhibition; a man points out items of interest to them; King George remarks on the terracotta pots.
