General note

King George VI and Queen Elizabeth stand on the steps of the Alberta Legislature Building in Edmonton while Premiere William Aberhart gives a speech. John Fry, Mayor of Edmonton, is standing behind Premiere Aberhart to the right. According to Siding 16, written by A. Bert Reynolds, many people from Wetaskiwin attended the big event including Carl Walin, who with "a special armband issued from Ottawa...was allowed access to any point where he wished to take photographs" (44). This made him "one of three photographers permitted on the [C.N.R.] platform and steps of the Legislative Building" (45), not including the official photographers who accompanied the royal couple. The assigned call number for this print is P12509.<br><br>
