This photograph is part of an album of prints presented to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a memento of their state visit to France from 18-27 August 1855. The album shows landmarks on the route of the Chemin de Fer du Nord, by which they travelled between Boulogne and Paris. The Queen described being met at Amiens by 'an immense crowd at the handsomely decorated station: The Bishop, the authorities, many ladies etc and the Garde Nationale and troops. All, most enthusiastic. We got out for a moment and I received a nosegay.'
