Prince Albert's tour visits London in Canada West

Prince of Wales, 1859, detail
09/13/1860 to 09/14/1860
Prince Albert's Canadian tour arrived in London, the capital of Canada West in the early  morning hours of the morning by rail from Toronto. Even at 4 a.m. the welcome was enthusiastic with the salutes being fired, the whole town turned out, and 2000 children singing "God Save the Queen."  After a visit in the town and an excursion to Sarnia, where he met with local Native American leaders, the Prince's party left the next day by train for Niagara Falls.  (By John Osborne)
