In 1881, Prince Albert Victor (1864-92) and Prince George, later King George V (1865-1936), participated in a cruise on HMS Bacchante as part of their naval training. Reverend John Neale Dalton (1839-1931), chaplain to Queen Victoria (1819-1901) and tutor to the princes, oversaw the cruise that included stops in South America, South Africa and Australia. This photograph is from an album presented to King George V by Dalton. The photograph is taken at the end of a jetty looking towards the South Australian beach town, Glenelg.
