King Ferdinand of Romania & Prince Carol

King Ferdinand of Romania driving from the Royal military headquarters, October 1916. The King acts as his own chauffeur when occasions arise. Beside him is Prince Carol. The car is of a powerful, for those times, touring type with external brake levers. Behind is the  pillared portico of the royal hunting lodge from Scroviste, near Bucharest. These are one of the first photographs of the monarch and his staff taken after Romania entered the First World War (August 1916).
