Addressed to Miss W. Valentine with a written message. The message includes that the bridge was lit up "on the night of the Kings visit. It looked so pretty, it was a grand day and I had a good view of them."
King Edward VII visited Bristol to open the new dock at Avonmouth on 9 July 1908. In the evening, after the opening celebrations, the King "had a motor drive from Avonmouth to Bristol, and inspected the Clifton Suspension Bridge". (Western Somerset Free Press, Saturday 11 July 1908, p. 8).
