EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the year 1927, when Baltimore was abuzz with excitement as it welcomed a royal visitor from across the Atlantic. The image captures a historic moment in time - the unloading of King George V's tender from a ship at Baltimore harbor. The scene is filled with an air of anticipation and grandeur. A majestic steamship looms in the background, its towering smokestacks billowing clouds of smoke into the sky. Crowds have gathered along the waterfront, eagerly awaiting their first glimpse of royalty on American soil. In the foreground, workers clad in rugged attire are seen meticulously unloading the tender from its maritime vessel. With utmost care and precision, they ensure that this important piece of transportation for His Majesty is safely brought ashore. The photograph not only showcases an extraordinary event but also serves as a testament to technological advancements during that era. It highlights how steam-powered ships played a crucial role in connecting nations and facilitating international travel. Preserved by STEAM Museum of GWR (Great Western Railway), this remarkable print offers us a window into history – reminding us of an era when kings traversed oceans to strengthen diplomatic ties between nations. It invites us to reflect upon our shared past while marveling at how far we have come since then.
