Lord, Lady, Queen

On this day in 1938, Lord and Lady Duveen departed Waterloo Station on the boat train for their journey aboard the Queen Mary. Lord Joseph Duveen, Baron Duveen of Millbank, was a well-known and successful art dealer whose clients included William Randolph Hearst, Henry Huntington, and John D. Rockefeller.
