Description

Front: "Mounting guard at Whitehall." Back: "Mounting Guard at Whitehall. - For a century and a half Whitehall Palace was the chief residence of the Court. All that is left is the Royal Chapel, now the United Service Museum, and the Horse Guards, now the office for the Commander-in-chief of the Home Forces. At 11 a.m. (Sundays 10 a.m.) the Guard on duty is relieved by another Guard, a pretty military ceremony which always attracts a crowd."
