T1933. This invitation was issued to a 'Councillor Robinson and Lady' inviting them to the official opening of the Manchester Ship Canal by Queen Victoria in May 1894. An opening of the Ship Canal had already taken place on New Year's Day of 1894, with a procession of ships carrying the Company Directors on the Canal. The Queen's visit marked the official opening and her visit was met with great celebration.
