The annual show of the Royal Agriculture Society of England was held in Lincoln on three occasions (1854, 1907, 1947).

In 1907 the showground was set up on the West Common for the 3-day event.

King Edward VII attended this show and is shown here being driven along West Parade towards the city centre, presumably after his visit to the show.

When the Royal Show was held in Lincoln in 1907 more than 100,000 visitors came, mainly by rail.

The principal streets of the city were decorated.  This arch over High Street was topped by a portable steam engine, symbol of Lincolnís engineering industry.

The single carriage in the photograph carries King Edward VII.
