The newly-wed Prince and Princess of Wales dedicate the new building of the British Orphan's Asylum
The newly married Prince and Princess of Wales opened the new building of the British Orphan's Home in Slough, outside London. The orphanage had been founded in 1827 and based in Clapham till a recent gift allowed it to buy the Royal Hotel in Slough and renovate it for up to 170 children. This event was one of many for the couple since their March 1863 marriage. The Asylum closed its doors for financial reasons in 1920. (By John Osborne)
