Bringing the past to life with colour

W. G. Grace & Friend


William Gilbert “W. G.” Grace with the Prince of Wales (later Edward VIII), in 1911. Grace seems to be in mourning, as he’s wearing a black armband. I can’t find any references to personal tragedies at this time, so it may be for Edward VII, who died the previous year.
