The Duke of Gloucester admires a South Australian steam engine, 1934

One for the monarchists - Henry William Frederick Albert (1900–1974), on the left in the pic, made a Royal Tour of Australia in 1934, seen here looking at the royal train's engine at Euralia in South Australia. He did some more train travel in NZ over December 1934-January 1935 before heading to Fiji.  He came back to Australia as GG over 1945-1947.
