The Duke, Prince Alfred, arrived in Leeds on 13th May 1875 to open the Yorkshire Exhibition of Arts and Manufacturers which was held to raise money for Leeds Mechanics Institute.

Marsden, giving the address to the Duke of Edinburgh who stands on a raised platform in the centre. The Exhibition was held in the Coloured Cloth Hall. The choir and orchestra stands to the left. Behind the Duke is a 6-pounder field gun made by Greenwood and Batley. The lower view shows the ball held in Victoria Hall in the Town Hall later in the evening. The ball was given by the Mayor, Mr Marsden and the Mayoress. In this view, the Duke is in the centre with Mrs Marsden, beginning the first quadrille.
