In Pictures: London In 1902

In 1902, King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra had a grand coronation at Westminster Abbey with 8,000 guests and 100,000 members of the public waiting outside for the procession. Elsewhere in London, cats' meat men were doing a roaring trade and, as usual, people were flocking to Trafalgar Square.
