Keys of the Fortress of Portsmouth, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Keys of the Fortress of Portsmouth, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Keys of the Fortress of Portsmouth, 1845. ...curious and antique emblems of authority...They are of bronze, of a deep gold colour; weigh two pounds and a half, and are fastened together by a purple ribbon, with deep gold fringe. They are each nine inches long; on the flutings is the following inscription; it should, however, be explained that the ancient keys, being much corroded, were mingled with a quantity of fresh metal, and recast in1814. "The Keys of the Fortress of Portsmouth, presented to, and most graciously received by, the Prince Regent...on the twenty-first June, 1814; when Lieut.-General Houston was the Lieut.-Governor, and Major-General Fisher the Commanding Engineer. "JOHN OWEN, Fecit. When her Majesty [Queen Victoria] received the keys on her first visit...she took them away with her in the carriage, and kept them for some time, to examine them'.

Arch at Broughton, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Arch at Broughton, 1844. Festal arch in Northamptonshire, erected in honour of Queen Victoria who was staying at nearby Burghley House. The arch is surmounted by a crown and Union jack flags, with a sign reading: Fear God and Honor the Queen. ...one of the most tastefully constructed arches, in the village of Broughton...where the preparations were extensive. "The entrance to, and exit from the place", says the Northampton Herald, "were ornamented with triumphal arches, formed of evergreens and flowers tastefully arranged, and the whole population of the village decked in holiday attire, lined the wood on either side, testifying in every possible manner, as the Royal party passed, the intensity of their gratification at even the momentary glance of her Majesty which the rapid progress of the Royal carriages allowed"'.

The Char-a-banc presented to Her Majesty by the King of the French, 1844

The Char-a-banc presented to Her Majesty by the King of the French, 1844. Queen Victoria and King Louis Philippe of France ride from the Queen's Entrance at Windsor Castle to Twickenham. This elegant vehicle is a modification of the family jaunting van of Normandy...It is built to accommodate eight persons; the body of the carriage being divided into four double seats. A neat canopy, supported by brass pillars, protects the company against the sun...The framework of the carriage is light, but substantial, firmly girded with iron fittings, and suited to the traffic of rougher roads than are ordinarily found in this country...Approach to the seats is gained from the sides, by three steps, which close and shut in beneath the floor of the carriage'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V
