English: Students parading an effigy of Sir Walter Raleigh on the Embankment.

' King George V laid another foundation stone and the buildings crept round to Houghton Street. To complete the ceremony the students captured a tobacconist’s effigy of Sir Walter Raleigh, which had some resemblance to the King, and conferred upon it appropriate degrees.'
