Royalty in the 1930s

Bought this interesting book in a second-hand bookshop some years ago.

Published by The Daily Express (British newspaper) in 1938, it is called "These Tremendous Years"

it tells in pictures the stories which made the headlines in the years between 1919, just after the first world war, to 1938, just before the second world war.

It is a fascinating book - full of pictures of royalty, politicians, actors, and world leaders.  With the popularity of the film "The King's Speech", I thought I'd show some of the royal pictures today.

Hope you enjoyed this little look back in time.

Love, Liz

What a lovely book to have, I bet it's easy to while away the time reading that. As a period of time I love the style of the years in between both World Wars
