Lettered, lower center: "LONDON MUSEUM tells London's story. Great events from pre-history to today come to life with the aid of | illuminated dioramas in Wren's quiet Kensington Palace, overlooking Kensington Gardens. Here, among | dazzling coronation robes and other regalia, live the dolls which Queen Victoria dressed and named when this | was her home. This most intimate of royal settings gives London's own collection a very special flavour. | Underground to Queensway or High Street Kensington"
