Especially at times of grave tension, all friendships are
important, so the visit to Britain of King Carol of Rumania in November
1938 was greeted with greater than usual acclaim. Of course, ties of blood
were equally strong since his mother, Queen Marie, was the daughter of
Queen Victoria’s son Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh.
(Appendix List No. 124) was produced on
December 3rd to emphasize the importance of this visit. Different sections
present a pictorial biography of the King and his son, Crown Prince Michael
(whose imposing official title was Grand Voivod of Alba Julia); the peasant
class in traditional dress; monastic art; notable buildings of Bucharest;
the beauties of the four provinces of Wallachia, Moldavia, Banat and Transylvania;
the natural resources of salt, oil, coal and timber, and the development
of the Rumanian Black Sea resorts.
