    The building is the Hull City Hall and the date is Friday June 26th 1914 when the King opened King George Dock in the city. The Queen laid the foundation stone 'electrically' from inside the City Hall of Newland High School. The royal couple returned in June 1917 to visit the school which by then had been converted into a VAD hospital.
