Market Place - Leeming Street
Mansfield
Nottinghamshire
England

Looking from the Town Hall up Leeming Street. (note - King George V and Queen Mary are not yet present in this picture). The King and Queen seem to have be on a Royal Progress tour of Nottinghamshire 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 a few weeks before the outbreak of World War 1).
