George VI, King (1895 – 1952) & Elizabeth (1900 – 2002)

An excellent early matte-finish 5″ x 6.75″ photo of the future King and Queen, Prince Albert and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, posing together during a portrait shoot in 1923, affixed to the original 8.25″ x 11.5″ studio mount, which is signed in bold ink, ‘Albert’ and ‘Elizabeth’. In fine condition, with scattered light foxing, and toning to the perimeter of the mount (which could easily be matted out). A remarkably early portrait of the attractive young couple.
