Image of the Day - 20th June 2011

Today's image of the day is a departure from our recent run of images.

This image was found on the superb World War II Database, and is of Crown Prince Hirohito visiting Edinburgh in May 1921.

At a guess I would say this appears to be a visit to Edinburgh Castle. Some of the soldiers appear to be forming a guard for inspection, but others appear to be spectating.

Hirohito became Emperor of Japan in 1926, and was head of state throughout the Second World War.
