London Hippodrome actress Vera Guedes leads a procession as Lady Godiva leading a procession, celebrating the coronation of King Edward VII. The event takes place on 9th September 1902, probably in Coventry, which is where the legend originates.

Godiva, a Saxon noblewoman, famously rode naked through the streets of Coventry to save the townspeople from her husband's oppressive taxation.
