EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures a historic moment during the Franco-British Exhibition held in London in 1908. In the image, King Edward VII of England (1841-1910) extends his hand in a warm gesture of friendship towards Emile Loubet (1838-1929), the President of France. The two leaders share a heartfelt handshake inside the Canadian Pavilion, marking the symbolic beginning of the Entente Cordiale – an agreement aimed at improving Anglo-French relations, which had been strained for decades. The backdrop of the Canadian Pavilion adds an interesting layer to the scene. The exhibition, which ran from May to November 1908, showcased various industries, including the dairy industry, with a particular focus on butter carving. The intricately carved butter sculptures displayed at the exhibition are a testament to the skill and creativity of the artisans of the time. The Entente Cordiale was a significant event in the early 20th century, as it paved the way for increased diplomatic, economic, and cultural cooperation between France and Britain. This photograph, taken on March 19, 1908, serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of diplomacy and the potential for reconciliation and understanding between nations. The 1900s were a time of great change, and this photograph encapsulates the spirit of the era – one of progress, innovation, and the pursuit of peace and unity among nations.
