      Great shot. looks black and white at first glance, until you see the green in the top right corner.

      .... this is on Marlborough Road on the outer wall of Marlborough House, just off the Mall. Can't remember who it was celebrating - the Mrs of some C19th King.

      it's Alexandra, the Mrs of Edward Vii according to wikipedia.

      bollocks, just noticed Yersinia already guessed it

      Alfred was quite an artist, too bad he sufferd so from bad money management. I think he was a jeweler on a grand scale.

      Long time since any wrote about this.

      Alexandra was George V, (the King's Speech), Grandmother, and our beloved QE2's great nana, daughter-in-law of Queen Victoria

      if that spikes your interest...
