…a lecture…

…at St Mary’s University, held in the rather splendid Waldegrave suite. The University’s Senior Common Room here has large signed photograph of HM Queen Mary and of Edward VIII – one of the few signed photographs of his short reign. Of course there is a picture of the present Queen in the entrance Hall. Clearly the tradition has always been to have a picture of the monarch…but I wondered why these two rather fine photographs in the Senior Common Room are actually signed. That’s another bit of the University’s history to research…Meanwhile, I enjoyed giving the lecture, which was organised
