HMCS Rainbow's Officers Greeting Dignitaries
Senior naval officers and politicians were present for HMCS Rainbow's arrival in Esquimalt on 7 November 1910.
Among them were Vice-Admiral Charles E. Kingsmill, Director of the Naval Service (centre, with beard), and Richard McBride, the premier of British Columbia (facing camera, in top hat). This view, looking towards the rear of the ship, shows McBride and senior naval officers with Rainbow's officers and honour guard, including a ship's boy. The breech of one of the ship's 4.7-inch guns can be seen in the foreground.
