Knights On Horseback In Coronation Day Parade
"Coronation Day" Historical Pageant; men in armour, on horseback
1/2 Glass plate negative

Negatives Collection, Leicestershire Record Office

A parade to celebrate the coronation of King George V and Queen Mary on 22 June 1911, featuring men dressed as amounted knights and squires (likely representing Leicester's connection to the War of the Roses). The parade is making its way down Western Boulevard. The former spire of St Mary de Castro church is just visible in the background.
