The Royal Visit of 1939, 17th May to 15th June

Here is an almost complete sheet (just missing some selvedge at the bottom) for the Royal Visit to Canada in 1939 by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Although depicted on the sheet, the young Princesses did not attend. Every province of Canada was visited plus the Dominium of Newfoundland (not at that point part of Canada) and the United States. It was a very successful tour at an important point in history, with world war looming. Canadian Prime Minister Mackenzie King accompanying the royal couple throughout the visit.

Here's another sheet for the Royal Visit of 1939 issued by Canadian/American whisky makers Seagram's. Showing monarchs and their spouses, where applicable, going back to George I. Sadly, no room for Wallis. But a nice idea.
