BOMBAY. The King & Queen at Apollo Bunder on their arrival in India 1911


Sir P. E. Mehta reading the Address of Welcomeat the Amphitheatre – Bombay. A good, unused postcard showing Their Majesties seated in front of temporary welcoming arch bearing quite a resemblance to the present day  Gateway to India in Mumbai. This was the first and only visit to India by a ruling King Emperor and the couple were of course on their way to Delhi for the great Coronation Durbar in December 1911.      aug13/2
