In the first decade of the 20c there were 2 royal visits to Norwich: King Edward VII came in 1909, King George V in 1911. In the newspaper reports of each of these visits mention is made of the furniture, shown here, especially made ‘by Messrs. Trevor & Page’ to be used by the royals. These photographs show the ‘throne’ made for George V, with the record on the back that ‘the oak was taken from the Norwich Guildhall during repairs 1907-8’.
