Nine Kings 1910

I should have compiled this page in time for the centennial of the death of King Edward VII in May 2010, but didn't think of it until tonight. Here is a tribute to one of my favourite photographs of royalty: the nine kings who assembled in London for Edward VII's funeral in 1910. I wish that someone with the power to bring it about had had my idea of re-creating the photo a hundred years later with those kings' present-day heirs.

That photo is in my printed calendar for 2011, sir.

Happy New Year!

And here's another good one.

It's a wonderful photograph, but quite sad, in retrospect, given all that happened later.
