George VI, state entry into Edinburgh, 5th July 1937, showing procession in Princes Street between Mound and Waterloo Place
Description
A large crowd is gathered and lines both sides of Princes Street as George VI and his entourage, many of whom are on horseback, proceed along the road. The public are separated from the procession by a row of soldiers. On both sides of the street there is a line of banners and several flags fly from the tops of the buildings. On the right side of the street is the spire of the Scott Monument, behind which can be seen the clock tower of the Balmoral Hotel and in the distance the memorial monuments on top of Calton Hill.
