King Edward



Today's picture shows King Edward riding in his carriage. In both this picture and the picture yesterday of Roosevelt, it is striking how 100 years ago dignitaries could travel more openly and without all the protection. Just another sign of how many ways things have changed in the last 100 years.

  1. But remember. that is how WWI started, a ride in open vehicle. I realize it was a car but it was 1914 and could have easily been a carriage.

  2. It is to bad that more civilized times can not come back to mankind.
    Even things with the PGA tournament are very heavily policed, and people have to park miles away from the event, and be shuttled to the event

  4. Where is the driver? Is he riding one of the horses? The guy in back of the carriage appears to be part of the procession and may be a protector.
