Scope and Content
Black and white photograph of the exterior of the Elgin County Court House, St. Thomas decorated with Union Jack flags and banners. Shows the scene of the official visit on May 6, 1914 of the Governor General, HRH the Duke of Connaught and his daughter Princess Patricia: their itinerary included a brief stop at the Court House and the corner stone laying ceremony for the new St. Thomas YMCA building on the southeast corner of Talbot and Ross Streets.
