  • Short Summary

    The Duke of Connaught greets patients treated at the Royal Westminster Ophthalmic Hospital

  • Description

    Item title reads: " Whereas once I was blind - now I see! Duke of Connaught - President - sees and is seen by patients, young and old, who have had their sight saved at Royal Westminster Ophthalmic Hospital."

    London

    The Duke of Connaught greets a group of patients. He wears a top hat and he bends to speak to a small boy. The small boy politely takes off his school cap - such manners.

    Note: Nice example of a child's good manners in the 1920's.
