Looking south to Victoria Gardens and Marlborough Place in July 1902. The procession was part of the celebrations for the coronation of Edward V11. Best clothes were decidedly the order of the day! How narrow Gloucester Place then was may be judged by the distance between the pavement (right) and the single tramline (left) which was hard up against the railings of the north enclosure. The houses on extreme right, 1-4, with many others were demolished in January 1935, the pavement set back by several feet and the roadway extended to its present width.
