We continue our look at foreign photos. I think this may be someone famous.
I purchased this photo in an antique shop in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. It looks like some Canadian Mounties guarding a train..and then there is the guy in the kilt. It must be a welcoming ceremony.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)

King George VI and the Queen Mother
More info from Iggy:
In 1939 King George VI became the first "reigning monarch" to visit Canada. During that trip, the King's consort, Queen Elizabeth, initiated the tradition of the "royal walkabout", though her brother-in-law, The Duke of Windsor (formerly Edward VIII), had when still The Prince of Wales in 1919 been frequently meeting with everyday Canadian people; as he said: "Getting off the train to stretch my legs, I would start up conversations with farmers, section hands, miners, small town editors or newly arrived immigrants from Europe."
The 1939 royal tour of Canada was a cross-Canada royal tour by George VI and Queen Elizabeth. It was the first visit of a reigning monarch to Canada. It began 17 May 1939, and saw the royal couple visit every Canadian province as well as the United States and the Dominion of Newfoundland.
