In this black and white photograph, President Franklin D. Roosevelt welcomes King George VI of Great Britain at Union Station in Washington, D.C. The British monarch stands on the left of the photo, saluting, with the president in the middle being supported by his aide, Brig. Gen. Watson. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt stands in a line behind the men flanked by additional military aides. Queen Elizabeth is also in line but not visible behind Watson. This was the first time a reigning British monarch had visited the United States.
