Ah the Berni Inn. Whatever happened to Berni Inns, I used always try and find a Berni when I was on the road? I remember that one, an early date with my now Wife :D Ken

1913 Royal Opening of the Gladstone Dock

Looks like the Royal Yacht Britannia docked at the Pier Head and the procession heading off .
I think there's a picture elsewhere on the forum showing Queen Alexandra at St George's Hall on the same day.
