Coronations and stuff

I know this ain’t got much to do with typography (though the border is a nice touch) but I can’t resist posting this image, again from the 1954 Penrose volume, and worthy of close examination as to the state of England in the 50s. I post it without further ado. Enjoy. Let the names roll around your mouth as you say them aloud, especially ‘The Rod with the Dove borne by The Duke of Richmond and Gordon his coronet carried by his page Simon Benton-Jones, Esq.’ Priceless. [Do click to enlarge.]
