Historic Photographs Details
An Adelphi Real Photograph Series postcard showing the proclamation of King George V at the Castlegate on 10 May 1910.

The statue of the Duke of Gordon can be seen in its original position. Photographers are within the statue's fenced off area. A small public fountain is located in front of the statue.

The scene at the junction of Union Street and King Street is very busy. A procession of dignitaries files past ranks of soldiers. Two dogs can also be seen milling around.
