Before . . .

he was King, in fact even before the thought of him becoming King.  This informal snapshot is of the Queen's father, who was to become George VI in 1936, following the abdication of his brother, Edward VIII.  I don't know the date of this snap, but would think late 1920s/early 1930s.  Today is the 60th anniversary of his death.
