Original vintage poster entitled London The Horse Guards originally issued by the LMS London Midland and Scottish railway and re-issued in 1939 by the outfitters FW Forsyth Ltd (established 1872) - Reproduced by permission to Commemorate their Majesties' Visit to Canada May 15 to June 15, 1939 - featuring artwork by the painter and poster artist Christopher Clark (1875-1942) depicting the King's Life Guard regiment of the Household Cavalry in colourful ceremonial uniform on their troop horses at Horse Guards Parade in London with a description below on the history of the Horse Guards and the ceremony of Trooping of the Colour with the LMS logos and wax seal logo of The Guaranteed Forsyth Shirt on both sides and on the image above. The annual tradition of Trooping the Colour dates back to before the 17th century; since 1748 the ceremony has been held to mark the official birthday of the British sovereign in June. Horse Guards Parade is located next to St James' Park and Whitehall in central London; jousting and other tournaments have regularly been held on the site since the time of Henry VIII (1491-1547) and where Charles II (1630-1685) stabled his troop horses; the area is now used for this annual parade and other ceremonies.
