Embarkation of Her Majesty, at Hull, 1854. Queen Victoria leaves Hull in Yorkshire. 'The pier...was covered with a substantial roof...and beneath this more seats were erected for the accommodation of spectators...Several bouquets were cast at the feet of the Queen, perhaps not exactly in accordance with strict ideas of courtly propriety...Again the cannon thundered, and again military bands vied with each other in their performance of the National Anthem. Her Majesty descended the carpeted slope which led down from the pier, and was handed on board her yacht by the Prince Consort. The guns of the Malacca, a steam corvette, which served as escort to the Fairy, boomed forth a Royal salute, and yards manned in every ship within sight. The broad estuary of the Humber was covered with steamers and small craft, which made vain efforts to keep up with the Royal yacht...'. From "Illustrated London News", 1854.
