Visit of the Duke of Connaught CIC Forces in Ireland and Prince Henry of Prussia to Cork Exhibition (1902)
Representatives of two royal families visit one of early 20th century Ireland's most ambitious exhibitions.
Non-Fiction 1902 3 mins Silent
A dozen years before hostilities broke out between Britain and Germany, members of their respective royal families visited the Cork Exhibition together on 8 May 1902. They are shown here inspecting one of its most imposing visual highlights: the gigantic water chute, which cost £3,000 to construct (nearer £300,000 today), as well as a police parade and more leisurely boating activities.
Arthur, Duke of Connaught (1850-1942) was Queen Victoria's third son, and the younger brother of King Edward VII. Prince Henry of Prussia (1862-1929), whose name was actually Heinrich, was the younger brother of the German Emperor Wilhelm II.
