In this doctored photo of Queen Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon — mother of Queen Elizabeth II — and Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King in Banff, Alberta, King George VI was removed from the original photograph. This photo was used on an election poster for the Prime Minister.

I chose this photo in particular because I wanted the viewer to focus in on Mrs. Alberta King. Many times she's only known for being the mother of Dr. King but she was also a part of the NAACP and the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.
