First airmail letter delivered, Windsor Castle Featured Print

First airmail letter delivered, Windsor Castle

The first airmail letter ever to be delivered is handed to the Postmaster of Windsor, to whom it is addressed, on the East Lawn of Windsor Castle. The aviator Gustav Hamel, who flew from Hendon to Windsor on the very first airmail flight, is standing bareheaded just behind the postman and his bicycle. The Mayor of Windsor, Sir Frederick Dyson, stands smiling in a top hat. The first aerial mail service took place on 9 September 1911 from Hendon Aerodrome to Windsor and back again, and Hamel was the first pilot to arrive. King George V gave permission for the aeroplanes to land in the grounds of Windsor Castle. During September 1911 the Grahame-White company operated an experimental air mail service for two weeks between Hendon and Windsor. As well commemorating the coronation of King George V, and raising money for charity, the event publicised the possibilities of the aeroplane as a means of transport

The Lord Mayor's Show, 1845. Creator: Smyth Featured Print

The Lord Mayor's Show, 1845. Creator: Smyth

The Lord Mayor's Show, 1845. Annual celebration for the inauguration of a new Lord Mayor of London: Spectacle Maker John Johnson was chosen in 1845. Besides the state coach of the Lord Mayor, the procession was made up of livery companies, watermen, heralds, riders in historical costume including knights in armour, hussars, aldermen and officials. The Lord Mayor elect was received throughout with every demonstration of respect, and occasionally with considerable cheering; not so his predecessor. Hence at various points in the route, especially at Walbrook and the junction of Cheapside with St. Paul's Churchyard, the ex Lord Mayor was met with loud hisses and expressions of disrespect'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
