Some of the highlights during their approximate eight hour visit included signing the visitor's book at the municipal offices, officially opening the Canadian National Railways Station on York Street, a presentation of the "Royal Swans" at Springbank Park and a train ride to Port Stanley on the London and Port Stanley Railway.
The Lord Mayor and his staff were dressed in their traditional finery and brought the accompanying regalia for the occasion.
The geographic location shows the Canadian Pacific Railway Station where the party initially arrived.
