EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures a historic moment in the annals of Newcastle-upon-Tyne's rich history. The image, taken on July 11th, 1906, depicts King Edward VII (1841-1910) as he unveils the statue of his late mother, Queen Victoria (1819-1901), at the Royal Victoria Infirmary. The sculpture, a poignant memorial to the long-reigning monarch, was created by renowned British sculptor George James Frampton (1860-1928). The scene is set against the backdrop of the Royal Victoria Infirmary, a prominent medical institution in Newcastle, which adds an intriguing juxtaposition of healing and remembrance. The King, dressed in formal attire, stands confidently at the podium, while his carriage waits nearby, its occupants shielded from the rain by umbrellas. The statue, which stands proudly behind the King, is a testament to the enduring legacy of Queen Victoria, who reigned from 1837 to 1901, making her the longest-serving monarch in British history. The unveiling ceremony marked the culmination of years of planning and preparation, and served as a symbol of gratitude and respect for the late Queen's dedication to the people of Newcastle and beyond. This photograph, with its historical significance and evocative imagery, is a valuable addition to any collection of Newcastle history or British monarchy memorabilia. The intricate details of the scene, from the King's regal bearing to the rain-soaked streets of Newcastle, transport us back in time, offering a glimpse into a bygone era.
